You have indicated this is a live environment which means visitors call the pages on the installation.

Whenever you remove a cache folder Magento will create a new version as soon as a user visits a certain page on the website. So this is actually desired behaviour

    Nope, you can flush cache and it'll apply your changes but will rebuild the cache right away Commented Mar 30, 2015 at 10:51
  • if i "flush magento cache" is that enough? Commented Mar 30, 2015 at 11:01
