There is a purpose why toilet comes with a seat cover and why it has to be close at all times. The number one reason to leave the toilet lid down is because it’s more hygienic. Every time you flush the toilet with open lid, those particles go all around the bathroom. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean bacteria is not there. The bacteria can stick to the walls of the toilet and other items such as toothbrushes, towels, and soap. To avoid coming into touch with these dangerous germs, keep the toilet lid locked when flushing and while not in use (why to take a chance).
Its important for pet’s safety since they love it. They have a habit of drinking water from the toilet, and this can make not only them sick but also you when you give him/her a smooch next time.
For Chidren’s Well Being. If you have a kid in the house, you should install a toilet lock. The number of cases of children falling into toilets is high. A child or a toddler can fall into an open toilet upside down and can get hurt badly. When there are youngsters in the house, the toilet doors and lids must be closed, and the lids lowered for their protection.
