3 Reasons To Rent A Portable Toilet During Your Bathroom Remodeling Project

You have all the plans worked out, the fixtures chosen, and even have a contractor scheduled to begin your bathroom remodeling project. It sounds like you've got it all figured out. However, there is one small detail that you should consider before your remodeling project begins: renting portable toilets. You may be thinking that there would be no need for a portable toilet during a remodeling project if the toilet itself is going to stay. Yet, there are actually some really good reasons why you should have a portable facility parked on your property promptly before the start date. 

Your bathroom toilet may not be accessible at all times. 

There are certain points of most bathroom remodeling projects when your toilet will simply be out of reach. For example, the toilet will not be available when:

  • Tiles are being laid on the floor
  • The toilet is removed so flooring can go down
  • The contractors are in the middle of installing a large fixture

At these times, your toilet will be pretty much off limits, so having a portable toilet will be a lifesaver if you plan to be at home during the remodeling project. 

Your bathroom may not be so family-friendly during the remodel.

Do you have children in the house? If so, this is all the more reason to rent a portable toilet during your bathroom remodel. Even if you and your children can gain access to your toilet in the bathroom throughout the duration of the project, it does not mean the space will be all that kid-friendly. Contractors may have power tools on the floor, sharp objects within reach, and even wet paint, grout, or drywall that cannot be touched by little curious fingers. 

Your bathroom remodel will go quicker without frequent interruptions. 

Using the toilet is just a fact of life. The average person will urinate at least six or seven times in a 24-hour period. Most contractors will work long hours during a bathroom remodel to get the project completed in a timely fashion. This means for every person in the household, there could be as many as six or seven interruptions in the workflow so someone could use the toilet. This can definitely slow down the process, especially if you have several people in the house and only the one toilet available. With a portable toilet rented, this will not be a concern at all.
