Under the heading of: Murphy's Law in which the chance of the bread falling with the buttered side face down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet...if you are having a party with alcohol and a really fancy bathroom, your risk of an epic plumbing disaster will be directly proportional to your ability or inability to provide waste bins.
We were employed for a marketing event put on at a large private estate in Beverly Hills on the weekend of the Oscars. For two days, four to five hundred guests dropped into this almost 10,000 square foot home where we were initially contracted for only the post-event cleaning. However, because the hosts had not provided trash bins in the bathroom, guests discarded their paper towels in the toilet which caused a backlog and, yes, you guessed it, a major plumbing disaster.
A disaster in which the final plumbing bill totaled $12,000.
This is a textbook example as to why pre-event walkthroughs with event porters and cleaners are critical for both logistics and your final bottom line.
PopUP CleanUP was then called in during the event along with a plumber to clean up and sort out the mess. Post-Event we were enlisted to power wash the outside of the house and driveway, polish the marble floors, and wipe the external windows in addition to deep cleaning the interior rooms and removing the garbage.
If you are planning an event, PopUP CleanUP can not only troubleshoot areas that can avoid unnecessary expenditures but also provide rental of trashcans and purchase of toilet paper and other supplies at cost.
