Is Your Job Site Prepared for the Summer Heat?

3 Tips to Ensure Your Construction Site Stays Fresh this Summer 

Working on a construction site can be especially tough in the hot summer months. With temperatures pushing towards 100 degrees not only is it hard to stay cool, it is also hard for construction managers to keep job sites fresh and odor free. While each site might be different, there are a few tips and tricks you must know to help keep your construction site fresh this summer!

Here are three easy ways to keep your site fresh during the dog days of summer:

    1. Additional Weekly Servicing – At Don’s Johns, we take pride in our once a week restocking, waste removal and unit sanitization that comes with each standard unit. However, in the summer heat, it is necessary for additional servicing to reduce odor and keep the job site clean. If our uniformed technicians come out at least once more per week, job sites are essentially odor free during the hottest months of the year.
    2. High-End Holding Tank Deodorizers – There is the standard, blue solution deodorizer that is seen in most porta potties, which get’s the job done in the cooler months of the year. In the summer though, we recommend going with the higher end deodorizer chemical paks by Walex. We have found that this deodorizer pak has performed the best in the extreme heat and is the most powerful in our industry.
    3. Air Freshener – Our last suggestion is a simple but effective solution. By placing air fresheners in your porta potty units you will be able to not only minimize odors but also keep them smelling great! Air fresheners will keep the port-a-potties bearable in between servicing during the hot summer months.  If you use us, that is a standard part of our service, every week! 

Learn more about how to keep your porta potties clean, including other tips and tricks for weathering these hot summer days.

Rent a Portable Restroom for These 4 Events

Portable restrooms have dated back some time. However, the idea of renting portable restrooms and luxury restroom trailers for all events is gaining in popularity. Don’s Johns provides quality standard and luxury portable restroom and trailer options that are perfect for any event.

Neighborhood Block Parties with Portable Restroom Rentals

Just about every neighborhood has a block party. From meet and greet with the neighbors, supporting a local political candidate, to back to school events, it’s sure to be one with plenty of food, beverages, and activities. Hosting the block party is usually an entire neighborhood collaboration. Neighbors pitch in on the food, beverages, utensils, and paper goods.

However, what’s not too common is how to accommodate visitors and guests with portable restroom facilities. The easiest thing to do to keep children outside and parents happy is to have a portable restroom available outdoors. Be sure to have portable sinks in the area for frequent and easy cleanup.

Portable Restrooms for Oktoberfest

October marks a popular social event of the year – Oktoberfest. Patrons from all walks of life gather together and drink some of the most popular and new alcoholic beverages from around the globe. This means patrons need to visit the restroom frequently as well. Having plenty of portable restroom trailers is a good idea to keep the long lines minimized. In the unfortunate event that someone gets sick, it’s nice to have a vanity area to clean up at.

Company Events need Portable Restrooms

The majority of company events are held for employees and their family and friends. These can range from upscale dinners to fun activities at a local park. Don’s Johns offers a variety of portable standard and luxury portable restrooms for any company event needs.

You’ll want to ensure to rent a luxury restroom trailer should all executives, shareholders, and other sponsors are present for important board meetings. However, for tailgating events, trainings, and other promotional events, a standard restroom trailer should do just nicely. You should ensure to have an ADA restroom trailer on-site for any type of company event to ensure you are meeting all health and ADA compliant regulations.

Black Tie Events need LUXURY Restroom Trailer Rentals

If you are shying away from the thought of a portable restroom for your black tie event – don’t. Our exclusive line of luxury restrooms is of VIP quality for your anniversary party, convention, or gala. In fact, Don’s Johns was voted as one of America’s Best Restrooms in 2011 in the same class as Chicago’s Field Museum and the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel indoor restrooms.

Having our portable restrooms at your outdoor event will blend right in with the décor. Your guests can comfortably walk inside our Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer and will be amazed at the granite counters and shelves, decorative mirrors, black marbleized walls, and hardwood flooring. Each are heated and air conditioned units, have hot and cold running water, and have upgraded individual stalls. Be sure to have one of our bathroom attendants on site to assist in keeping the unit clean and fresh.

Give Don’s Johns a Call!

Browse through our vast selection of portable trailer restroom options and portable restroomsfor your next event. Then, give our helpful representatives a call at 877-9-Toilet to reserve your portable restrooms. We ensure quality restroom trailers at its best.

6 Tips to Maximize Productivity on Your Construction Site

The statement ‘time is money’ definitely applies to the construction industry. Whether it’s a loss of equipment or an inefficient use of your employees, your project’s deadline could be missed by weeks to a month. To ensure you are maximizing your productivity, follow these six tips.

Plan for Everything

The most expensive part of most construction projects is improper planning. There are too many predictable things that can happen that can cost your project a fortune. Before bringing anyone on site, plan for those minor details to avoid a major catastrophe. This keeps your project on schedule by ensuring you will have the proper manpower, supplies, and equipment every step of the way.

Optimize Your Crew

It’s understandable that you have particular crew members trained for specifics on the job. To remain up to code, they should do what they are trained for. However, there are a few non-certified activities that anyone can perform during their downtime. Be sure to speak to your entire crew about remaining productive, be it training another individual or cleanup at the construction site.

Use Storage Containers

Storage containers are not just meant to keep outdated items out of the way. You can rent temporary storage containers for each construction project you work on to keep a clean and organized site. Rent storage containers to keep any waste at bay.  Order your materials ahead of time and store away in case your project is ahead of its timeline. Your items will be there ready to implement into the next phase.

Implement New Technology

Every organization should embrace new technology. It improves workplace performance, saves time, and reduces costs. It is scary for some employees that have been on the job for a number of years to embrace any change. However, with proper training they can see how technology is not there to replace them but make their jobs easier at your construction site.

Track All Your Equipment

Can you recall how many times your employees have lost equipment or unfortunately borrowed equipment? It’s easy to keep track of all your equipment, tools, and other materials by adding an inexpensive GPS tracker on them. Mistakes do happen, and it should not slow down your construction project.

Keep Sanitation Units On Site

As your employees work long hours, they are bound to need frequent restroom breaks. Disturbing neighboring businesses may bring more problems than collaboration. It’s not very productive for these restroom breaks either as they need to spend the time walking or driving off site. Instead, provide clean restroom facilities and portable sink options for employees to access easily in seconds.

Don’s Johns has many sanitary options available for your construction site. The above tips combined with portable restroom options are a sure way to increase production for your next project.

Portable Restrooms in the Films: Why It’s a Necessity on Your Set

portable-restrooms

Washington, DC is an exciting location for the film and video industry. Don’s Johns is proud to make available our portable toilets and portable trailer restroom options to you and your crew. If you’ve been busy planning your long production nights, make sure you don’t forget to include portable toilets in your operations budget.

Convenient to Have When Relocating Sets

When switching sets, you can conveniently bring along the Premier restroom trailers with you. These are hands-free flushing toilets and fresh water sink units. This is an excellent idea when your set is constantly on the go. There is no need for electricity or for a company to come deliver for you.

Everyone Stays Focused on their Tasks at Hand

Your crew doesn’t need to worry about keeping the restrooms clean either. You can have a Don’s Johns full-time restroom attendant on site to provide regular cleaning and ensure everything is stocked well. So everyone can focus on their tasks at hand.

Have Access to a Variety of Portable Toilet Options

Don’s Johns offers more than just your standard porta potty. Just think how your cast will feel walking into a Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer. Each is climate-controlled heat and air conditioned, the perfect mini-escape for anyone to retreat to exit the extreme temperatures outdoors.

Inside you’ll find elaborate finishes such as granite counters and shelves, wood panel doors, black marbleized walls, and hardwood-designed floor. There’s also three flat screen televisions and a dual audio system.

Other trailers are available. For instance, the DJ3200 Restroom Trailer offers five stalls in the women’s suite and two stalls in the men’s suite. If you have fewer crew members, the DJ3100 Restroom Trailer has three stalls in the women’s suite and one stall in the men’s suite. However, all of our portable restroom trailers come with hot and cold running water, as well as plenty of soap and paper towels.

Provide Plenty of Hand Washing Stations

It’s widely known that filming sets have a lot of food for hungry actors, actresses, and production crews. Handling the various equipment and frequent wardrobe changes, they easily pick up germs. It’s a good idea to have portable sinks, hand washing stations, and hand sanitizer units set up across your set so everyone can remain germ-free.

So as you can see, Don’s Johns is available to help out no matter your need. Be it weddings, construction, or filmmaking in the greater Washington, DC area, we are ready to support you with an upscale portable restroom option.

Keep Your Customers Happy, Even During Business Remodeling

remodeling

Don’s Johns has been servicing the greater Washington, DC area for 50 years. As you may think of us as just a provider of portable restrooms for construction crews, concerts, weddings, and other special events, we also are here for our local businesses, even during remodeling.

If you’re working on a simple or complete remodeling project, you still have a business to run; you can’t just close your doors. Don’s Johns understands your pains of trying to keep happy customers, even during your business remodeling season. Here are three ways partnering with us helps you keep your customers happy during such a hectic and unorganized time.

Leaves the Impression Your Employees Practice Sanitary Habits

In most establishments, there are employee restrooms and separate customer restrooms. However, sometimes a place of business only has one. Your customers are going to notice the lack of restrooms for your staff, be it a food establishment or general retail store. Good hygiene and sanitary practices are expected nowadays. With germ spreading on the rise, a customer can’t help but notice and wonder if your employees are washing their hands throughout the day.

Help ease your customer’s mind and let them know that you have a clean restroom facility on site for your staff to use. This is also a great way to show the contractor and their crew you are looking out for their best interests as well. Don’s John’s restrooms each have hot and cold running water and ample amounts of soap. You’ll also find having a few hand sanitizers in your restaurant establishment for employees to use once they’ve left the restroom is comforting as well.

Don’t Lose Customers Because of a Lack of Restroom Facility

When your customers come out to shop and browse, they want to do so comfortably. However, having children with them could cut their trip short, if you are renovating the store and restroom area. Your customers may need to change their babies. Toddlers alert parents right then and there they have to use the restroom, not a moment sooner. Once your customer leaves your place of business, this opens the door for them to visit your competitor, with a clean restroom waiting for their use. The possibility of them walking back to pick up that item they were eyeing is drastically reduced.

Get the Portable Option to Meet the Needs of Your Customers

Make sure your customer needs are being met. Don’s Johns has a variety of standard portable restroom solutions as well as luxury restroom trailers that are ADA compliant. Each trailer is stocked with antibacterial soap to use with hot and cold running water, which is perfect to prevent the spread of germs during the cold season. The cool winter air prevents most from wanting to use a standard portable unit outdoors. However, our restroom trailers are a climate-controlled environment, for those side-walk sale shoppers to relieve themselves in comfort.

You can count on Don’s Johns to provide the portable restroom facilities your organization needs. We have plenty on hand and available for you to use for as long as you need.

The warm summer nights, the cool winter days, it really doesn’t matter when you host an event, it can be the most memorable of all. It requires careful preparation and thoughtful planning. An unforgettable event can’t be planned overnight. You should have delectable foods, fine wine, servers, and luxury restroom trailers.

Opt for Style and Comfort

If you’re looking to have an opulent event, you want it to be stylish and comfortable. Contrary to popular belief, those attending galas and such want to be more than just a pretty face in the crowd. Women wear their high heels and men look amazing in their tuxedos; however, they are surely uncomfortable.

Your event can be stylish and allow them to be comfortable in a Presidential Luxury Restroom Trailer complete with air-conditioned units.

Keep Everyone Clean and Fresh

Depending upon the event, you can also keep everyone clean and happy with portable sinks scattered about. As your guests eat finger foods or sip on wine, they may need to clean their hands. It’s also a great sanitary practice to keep sinks or hand wipes available as people meet and greet new acquaintances.

Enhance the Décor with Restroom Wraps

Restroom trailers can be extraordinaire. You usually see portable restrooms as the standard blue. However, Don’s Johns offer full trailers and you can enhance the décor with restroom wraps.

These wraps come in a solid color, or you can have a custom wrap matching your events color palate. In addition, you can decorate the inside of a restroom with chic paper hand towels. Place a few baskets on the granite counters and fill with rose petals.

3 Reasons You Need to Rent a Portable Toilet

Portable Toilets for all Summer Events

portable-toilet

If you are planning an outdoor event this year or working outdoors, having a place to beat the heat is as important as having proper hydration! Dons Johns encourage you to be safe and happy this summer. Check out the following three reasons you must have a portable toilet to rent.

Rent a Portable Toilet for Family Gatherings

Summer brings about many family barbeques, celebrating graduations, weddings, the Fourth of July, reunions, and other celebratory events. Often hosted in the park, you may not have access to a restroom facility. With so much food and celebration going on, it’s best for the party planner to have ample portable toilets available.

Guests drinking and eating all day will soon have an immediate restroom need for themselves and their children. The DJ2300LF Luxury Restroom Trailer w/Family Room is the perfect portable toilet for large gatherings with multiple children. It’s a heated and air conditioned unit with a changing table. This is a perfect place to calm down children and get them out of the heat.

Rent a Portable Toilet for Public Events

All public events try to cater to not only the audience but the performers as well. So from sports games, to not-for-profit banquets, to concerts, everyone needs to be accommodated.

Don’s Johns fortunately have a portable toilet to fit each guest’s needs. The DJ5000LX Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer is the crème de la crème, offering granite counters, marble walls, and hardwood floors. Treat them like the VIP they are. The DJ4000 Restroom Trailer is great to keep restroom lines to a minimum, offering 7 stalls.

Construction Site Owner need to Rent a Portable Toilet

If you have a construction site, you want your employees happy. When employees are unable to relieve themselves at work, they often become poor performers. This could result in a safety hazard.

No matter if they are on the site, working on a highrise, or on the highway digging holes, it should not take them more than 3-5 minutes to get to a suitable portable toilet. You can also keep clean drinking water available with an additional portable sink.

Having enough portable toilets will make business owners will appreciate your workers not relieving themselves in an alley around their business. Also, this prevents workers from using restaurant restrooms with the many customers they must past through, disturbing their business.

We can help you get started today. Our seasoned staff can help you choose exactly the right portable toilets for your needs and budget. Give us a call – toll free at 877-9-TOILET. You can also contact us here for a free quote.
