Portable restrooms are our specialty at Texas Outhouse! Our main service area is in Houston and throughout the Greater Houston area. However, we will provide portable restrooms beyond Houston to South Texas and other parts of Texas as needed.
Now is a great time of the year to consider renting portable toilets for an event. Now that the hot Texas sun has cooled off, event planners can truly take advantage of outdoor pleasantries by renting portable restrooms for outdoor events.
This is especially true this year due to COVID-19 concerns and limitations. If your indoor event has been forced outside — which isn’t so bad this time of the year — you can provide guests and staff with access to clean, portable restrooms by renting from Texas Outhouse.
We are here for you, Texas! So, keep reading for more information about our portable restroom services for event planners.
What You Need to Know About Renting Portable Restrooms
If you have planned an outdoor event before, you know there is a lot to consider ahead of time. One thing that is often overlooked or assumed is that guests and staff will have access to restrooms. But, what happens if indoor restrooms are restricted at a particular venue or attendees are uncomfortable using an indoor restroom because of the pandemic?
Then, where will individuals go if they need to use the restroom? It’s true that many folks do not feel comfortable using public restrooms right now, plus that might not even be an option depending on the location of the event you are planning.
In fact, a major American newspaper recently covered this issue of folks being apprehensive to use a shared, indoor public restroom in the aftermath of the pandemic. Some venues and businesses even hired “bathroom monitors” to continuously clean their restrooms to help alleviate concerns.
You don’t need to worry about this when you rent portable restrooms for your event from Texas Outhouse. Social distancing is built-in. Plus, our team thoroughly cleans and sanitizes each portable toilet so that you can continue to provide a safe, reliable restroom option for guests.
This is why we believe renting portable restrooms is your safest, most cost-efficient option to provide a great restroom experience in Texas.
How Many Portable Restrooms to Rent?
Next, you will want to know how many portable restrooms to rent for your event. Answers to the following questions will help you decide on the number of restrooms.
– Question: How many people do you expect will be attending?
If you expect 50-100 guests to attend, then 2-3 portable restrooms should be sufficient. However, you’ll want to consider the size of the space, how far people will need to walk to get to them, and where they will line up and be able to maintain social distancing comfortably.

If you believe more than 100 people will attend, then consider renting our restroom trailers with multiple stalls. Be sure to check out our 2-stall mobile restroom and handwash station for extra sanitation support.
– Question: What is the general age group of the expected attendees?
The age range of your crowd also will help you determine your restroom needs. For example:
- Senior citizens may need to use the restroom more frequently. If you are expecting an older crowd, you may also want a larger trailer with wheelchair accessibility.
- Young children can be pretty messy, and families with multiple young ones may need to bring all the kids into the stall at one time. Consider incorporating our trailers that are more spacious to help accommodate those needs!
– Question: What types of food and beverages will be served?
If you plan to serve standard fare without alcohol or extra spicy foods, you are probably safe with your baseline number of restrooms. However, if you are serving alcohol or food that results in frequent trips to the restroom, then you may need to consider additional stalls.
Also, be sure to check ahead for the expected weather on the day of the event. While it’s typically cool this time of the year, there’s always a chance of a sneaky warm Texas day. This could lead to more water and beverage consumption, resulting in a greater need for portable restrooms. These are all things to keep in mind as you plan.
