Pet damage. 

The most common expensive things are water damage from washing machine hose breaks and leaks, facets that fail, clogged toilets flooding, sinks backing up and things like that. You also need to make sure the dryer lint exhaust gets cleaned out properly.

Carpet at entry points, typically the living room.

Second is probably storm doors and window screens in my neck of the woods.

Third would be shelves, crisper drawers, or door bars in refrigerators.
