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.

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.

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.

Well, they bring more than happiness and comfort to construction crew members. Don’s Johns provide many portable construction restroom options that you can host on site for your construction workers that prove to save your company time and money.

Construction Business is Booming Again

Operations are back up like never before. As the housing crisis of 2008 gradually recovers, the rental market created a greater need – more housing. In addition to this, with corporations being comfortable investing once again, there are other lucrative renovation projects underway. So construction needs are back up again, which requires an increase in construction workers, which requires an increase in construction porta potty rentals.

You may have had to lay off a few of your workers, but now is the time to hire them once again. You may need to hire new workers as well. Sure, you’re going to need to stay competitive and have new construction tools and software put in place so they can perform optimum. However, you must also remember your workers are human and require select services, such as a convenient to access portable restroom.

construction-porta-pottyTake Care of Your Construction Crew with Small Gestures

When your employees do a great job, such as finishing a milestone ahead of schedule, you want to reward them. Small gestures such as bringing them an unexpected lunch or giving out an additional bonus are appreciative by employees.

You’ll be amazed to know that many workers understand that financial gestures aren’t always possible. So they appreciate the things such as having clean restroom facilities nearby to relieve themselves. There are many options Don’s Johns has for your site such as:

So no matter the site your workers are on, they will always have a sanitized environment to go to. This eliminates their need to wander to unsanitary areas.

Moreover, how about pleasing your workers by giving them other sanitary options to use during the day? Placing a few hand sanitizer’s or hand wipes & foam stations around the site keeps germs to a minimal as they take breaks and have a small snack during the day. Quad wash stations and our portable sink’s provide clean drinking and hand washing water as well. This is perfect for those hot days in the sun.

You can also really treat your employees and show them you care about their health and that they are in a sanitary environment by placing a DJ3000 Restroom Trailer on site. This provides not only 7 partitions for their privacy, but offers a heated and cooled environment to escape to should they need a moment.

Reduce Time and Save on Labor with Construction Porta Potty Rentals

You will actually see productivity increase with your workers, which means somewhere they are reducing their time finding suitable restroom accommodations, and this will save you money. In fact, in this Portable Sanitation Association International study of the Provisions for Sanitation Facilities at Construction Sites, you’ll see how it’s not expensive at all to add high-rise and other portable restroom options to your site.

The average company will see an ROI of about 588% of the cost of the restroom in direct cost savings. The average construction worker is gone for 7 minutes to use an off-site facility. So, our construction site portable restroom options pay for themselves because your workers are gone less.

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 888-331-6323. You can also contact us here for a free quote.

3 Tips to Help your Home Remodeling Project Run Smoothly

Every year millions of homeowners decide to remodel their homes in hopes to bring up their property value, updating aging amenities or for increased enjoyment of their homes.  Depending on the complexity of the job and your do-it-yourself experience, a remodeling project can run into many snags along the way. Problems ranging from running over budget or time to running into unforeseen problems that were not factored in, a remodeling project can turn into a challenge.

Here are 3 tips to help your remodeling job project run smoothly, and help you enjoy the process!Home Remodel, Construction, Porta Potty Rental

1.)   Check with governing bodies: Ensure before you start your remodeling project, you have all of the necessary approvals, ‘sign-offs’, and permits. If you live in a neighborhood that has a homeowners association, notify them of any architectural or property changes that you plan on making. Check with covenants and restrictions of your development as well.  Ensure your contractor has all permits and necessary paperwork for inspections on site at all times. This will ensure your remodeling project won’t get stalled due to legalities.

2.)  Know your budget and time constraints: It always seems like there is never enough money or time to get everything done on a single remodeling project.  Before you picture yourself in your new remodeled kitchen or restroom, get estimates from reputable contractors on how much it will cost, and the time it will take to complete. For DIY projects, calculate the cost for tool and sanitation rentals will be and how much time you will need to take from work! If necessary, ask for friends and neighbors help, or seek advice online or at your local home improvement store. Factor in a ‘cushion’ for unforeseen costs and time needed.

3.)  Make plans outside of the remodel: While it’s easy to get focused only on your pending remodel, don’t forget about factors outside of the direct renovation. Plan for trades and construction workers to be on your property and throughout all portions of your home. Plan for a portable sink and/or portable toilet rental, construction waste disposal, and trash receptacles. If using a general contractor, confirm that your porta potty rental and other waste facilities will be tended to and that they will be emptied and serviced regularly. Lastly, ensure your home is secured before and after workers leave to ensure your home is protected from burglaries at all times.

How Many Porta Potties Are Needed For Special Events

porta-pottiesIf you are planning a special event, it’s hard enough trying to get an accurate count of guests to determine how much food and beverages you will serve. You must know how many chairs and tables to set up. Possibly even how many party favors to have as well. You also should be sure you have enough porta potties on site from Don’s Johns.

You see, hosting events, you can expect your guests to enjoy the food and beverages, especially if it’s a warm day. Participants are having fun and are more sociable while drinking. What agitates guests at events is being uncomfortable, too hot, babies may need changing, or guests needing to wait in long lines or walk uncomfortable distances to the restroom. Here are a few suggestions to having happy guests stay at your event.

How many Porta Potties?

Don’s Johns Tips to Consider:

  • As long as you are having a headcount of fewer than 50 people, 2 portable restrooms are a great start to accommodate your guests.
  • If you have a 4-hour event on a hot day, having 3 DJ4000 Restroom Trailers provides a great air-conditioned environment for 100-250 guests to cool off.
  • The longer the event and more attendees, you want to increase your numbers. This allows guests to continue to drink and have a good time knowing they have access to the restroom
  • Remember, if you have more than 50% of your participants as women, you need to increase the number of units by at least 25%.

porta-potties-planning-chart

Women tend to check their makeup and to refresh themselves in groups, so you need a place that’s roomy enough and accommodating. The DJ5000LX Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer has beautiful granite countertop and is spacious. This well-lit mirrored area is stocked with plenty of paper towels and clean hot and cold water. Guests can talk about the night’s events and lounge around. They can keep up with what is going on outdoors via 3 flat screen televisions and listen on the dual audio system.

You can also consider the DJ2300LH Luxury Restroom Trailer w/ADA Room, as these units are ADA compliant of which you should have a good 10% of all portable restrooms as one to accommodate disabled or senior guests.

Remember to keep all parties involved, having portable handwashing stations around will be helpful. They don’t have to go into the restrooms to have clean hands and enjoy their foods. Parents can use the hand wipes to keep children’s faces and hands clean as well.

As a woman-owned business, Don’s Johns understand all these needs. Contact us today and an advisor can personally assist you with the number of clean uncomfortable portable restrooms to have at your indoor or outdoor event.

The History and Evo-loo-tion of Portable Restroom Rentals

Portable Sanitation has come a long way since its inception.  A rich history of development and innovation has laid the path for what has expanded to about 1,400,000 portable restroom rentals in use worldwide.  As one of America’s Best Restrooms, we’re reflecting with a restroom recap on what has brought us to this point in portable toilets.

Porta Potties have been in shipyards since the 1940’s to save downtime among employees working on site. It porta potty rental, portable toilets for sale, porta john rental, portable restroom rental, restroom trailer rentalall started with one company that decided to build a portable restroom facility on a ship that was under construction. When consumer demand began requesting portable toilet rentals, companies quickly came to serve the call and the Portable Sanitation Industry was born.

The earliest versions of Don’s Johns portable restroom rentals were built of wood  and made to order, while other companies swiftly followed suit. A number of companies sprouted up, each calling the invention a different  name, including porta john, Port-o-let and many more. The idea for the portable toilet spread among entrepreneurs and started a new industry that could serve the need of restroom rentals for:

Evolution of portable restrooms has gone from wooden outhouse style portable toilets to the modern plastic portable toilet that began being manufactured in the 1960’s.  More recent contributions to portable toilet innovation include:

  • Hands-Free Flushing Toilets
  • Hook Construction Portable Toilets for working on multi-story projects
  • Porta Potties on trailers for highway construction and workers going from site to site
  • Self-Composting Portable Toilets
  • Changing Stations
  • Vanities with Mirrors
  • Solar-powered incandescent lighting
  • Vinyl Restroom advertisement wraps
  • Built-in sinks with fresh water and energy-efficient self-closing faucetsporta john rental, portable restroom rental, restroom trailer rental, luxury restroom trailer

A complete game changer to the Portable Restroom industry are the Restroom Trailers.  No longer is the standard, one person porta potty rental an option for your VIP restroom experience. Restroom Trailers feature everything from luxury marbleized interiors with hardwood floors to additional family rooms and built-in TV screens. Restroom trailers are so nice in fact, that in 2011, Don’s Johns Presidential Luxury Restroom Trailer (the same type set up for President Obama during the 2009 inauguration) was named as one of America’s Best Restrooms by Cintas!

Shower trailers have also been added to the restroom trailer family and are quickly rising in portable sanitation popularity. Our shower trailers have both Men’s and women’s sides, each with three shower stalls, one toilet and one sink, are energy efficient and provide plenty of continuous hot water. These mobile shower trailers can even be hooked directly to a sewer line for continuous use. Shower trailers are useful in serving on location temporarily or permanently during extended outdoor stays for campgrounds, festivals, emergency situations and many other important applications.
