14 Things Every U.S. Homeowner Should Do Once a Year

Check Your Pipes and Sewage Outflow

Even if your home doesn’t have a septic tank, this task should still be on your list. “We cannot stress how important this is. Sometimes when sewage pipes become too full, they burst and ruin yards,” Ferrandi warns. “A lot of the times this is a city or town pipe, but the city or town will not pay for the damage.”

If you find a blockage before it becomes an explosion, however, often the city or town will send resources to help you deal with the issue. Contact your local town or city hall sewage department with questions. Also check for toilet and faucet leaks that a plumber would need to assess.
