They are quite common but surely important points.. Everybody should consider them and not to forget about them when they are leaving there home.. Specially switching off the electricity as this can surely create major issue due to some problem. I have recently seen such incident when due to short circuit one couple have to bear so many damage in their house when they were not at home. So better to switch off the main switch if nobody is at home. This will secure your house from such problems. Nice tips , keep it up.
