What We Do
Septic Inspections

All water from the house, whether it’s from the sink, shower, toilet, or other water source, flows into the septic tank.
Water Sampling

Just about any mineral or impurity can be tested for in water, the most common sample group is called the Potability Water Sample.
Well Yield Testing

A Well Yield Test is a timed test that determines how many gallons per minute a well system can produce. This test can save money by identifying problems in the system.
Sewer Inspections

Camera Sewer Line Inspections are available for properties on public utilities. We view and record the sewer lines from an access cap typically located in the basement of the home.
Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless and therefore cannot be detected by our senses.
Mold Sampling & Inspection
Mold is a living organism that is found, both indoors and outdoors, in areas of high humidity or on materials that have been water damaged.

Great experience all around! Scott really took the time to explain the systems in detail to me. I can't tell you how helpful he was. Thank you!

As a professional real estate agent, Home Land Environmental is our #1 trusted partner to inspect wells and septic systems. They have saved my clients THOUSANDS of dollars by clearly inspecting and finding issues for my buyers. Issues like holes in the well casing, leaks in septic tanks, and/or clogged drain field pipes have been discovered and documented for my clients. They are excellent at what they do!!

Gary Ahrens, Keller Williams Realty Centre

I used Home Land Environmental for a well yield and water sample test. The inspectors were on time and had the yield report within a few hours. They were very responsive to both phone calls and emails and answered any questions I had. I would certainly recommend or use them again.

Amanda Hughes

The inspector, David Vincent, is extremely detailed and knowledgeable. I appreciate a technician who gives a clear and concise report, with no ambiguity. The company doesn’t perform repairs, so NO conflict of interest. It's an ugly job, but he does it with grace and professionalism. Thank you, David, as my client could have made a costly mistake without your guidance.

I absolutely love Home Land Environmental! It was a Wednesday, and my client only had until the following Tuesday to get a radon, septic, and water well test done before their home inspection continency ran out. A colleague referred Home Land Environmental, and boy did they come through for me! Their staff was friendly and understanding, the technician showed up on time and got right to work. I look forward to building a strong relationship with Home Land Environmental as my business continues to grow here in Montgomery County, MD.

CUSTOMER SERVICE HAS BEEN AMAZING!!! Amanda and Nick went out of their way to make sure we were 100% happy. We're buying a home with a well and septic system, and I had a lot of questions after receiving the report. After working all day, Nick returned my call and took the time to explain how my system works while going over each recommendation he put in our report. He also invited me to call in the future if I have more questions! That type of ownership of a job is almost unheard of these days and it really does make a difference.

Roderic F.

I was very impressed with the level of detail that was provided within the report. It included everything you would want to know about the condition of your well and septic system. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to have their system inspected.

Brandon Alfred

Home Land is awesome. An expert in the well and septic world, who I have called upon many times for my buyers and sellers. I highly recommend them.

Pamela Stone

Special thank yous to everyone who took after hours and weekend calls/emails, solved problems, anticipated challenges and helped guide Mary and Mike through the process!

Stacie Mills

Excellent great friendly guys. I'm quite knowledgeable but they still explained every step like I was a newbie and that's great for them for normal customers. Definitely looking out for our interests.

David Pittman

As a manager of a local Mechanical Contractor I can tell you that it is hard enough finding employees to not only do a job correctly but even harder to find ones that can interact and speak with customers... I will recommend your services to others!

It was the most thorough well and septic testing I've ever seen in my 20 years in real estate. I'll be recommending your company to my clients from now on.

Lori Magnum Connor

I'm a real estate agent. You sent the most wonderful young man to work with us yesterday. Benny was absolutely fantastic. He was detailed, professional, and such a fine young man that I just wanted to adopt him! I wanted to pass this along to you because it's rare that we come across someone that is really fantastic with our clients. So, thank you so very, very much.

Jackie Gailey

I've been referring Home Land to my buyer-clients for years now and have always had positive experiences with your inspectors. Everyone I interact with is helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and friendly. Scott has been really great to work with. Super knowledgeable and patient. Always a pleasant demeanor, always a great attitude. When I learn that Scott is going to be the tech on one of my jobs, it relieves stress, because I know my clients and I are in great hands.

Phil Morningstar

Julie Cicero

I want to graciously thank you for your generosity with sending us a mold kit and providing us with timely results. Thankfully, the mold test didn’t show any signs of mold, but it helped us rule out a cause from sickness and also provide us with peace of mind.

I thought the class Eric taught on septic systems was phenomenal! As a licensed contractor and licensed real estate agent it was very, very informative. I will definitely suggest my clients contact your company if they have a property with septic.
