Sewer backflow valve maintenance hasn't been done in over a decade. Maybe two decades.

Our house has a sewer back flow valve. It has never been cleaned out. We have lived here a decade, and the house was built long before that.

I figure I should do something about it. Do I just hire any sewer company for maintenance?

Nothing that a homeowner and a garden hose can't do. Probably as simple as screwing off the top, remove and clean the flapper, clean underneath and replace.
