Do you cover your rack gear when not in use?

Do you cover your rack gear when not in use?

I know what happens to my 30 year old Marshall, and I`m not to keen on having the same "dirty pot" problems. I never see them covered to keep the inevitable dust out. I was thinking of getting some rolls of fabric or something to cover them when not in use, or am I overreacting?

I have been using old bed sheets for this and they work very well when folded up to fit the boxes to be covered.

I cover everything in my studio with plastic sheeting before i leave the building.
Keeps the dust off and guards against any water ingress should a pipe burst in the other rooms above me.
It might seem a bit over the top but it has saved my vintage synth bacon on more than one occasion......
