Do I need to cover my toilets with plastic?
 
 
We do not recommend covering the toilets with plastic while the home is unoccupied. Due to the higher setting of the interior temperature of the home and the tight seal of the plastic wrap on the toilet rim, moisture has a chance to evaporate up to the plastic causing mildew around the top of the toilet. This contributes to a musty unwanted smell.
If you have a home watch service the toilets should always be maintained and fresh. In the event your home will be unattended pour a 1/4 cup of bleach to your toilet water to avoid settlement. You may also use 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar, but NEVER mix these products. Either use one or the other. Cover with plastic to avoid water evaporation.
