Homeland Environmental
Our Story
Tree Logo
Home Land Environmental has been serving Maryland since 2004. Our business is strictly focused on well and septic testing for the purposes of real estate transactions. We do not provide services for remediation, which has allowed us to problem-solve without outside influences. Home Land Environmental is completely impartial in the evaluation of your systems.

We are proud to say that we do not benefit from any remediation we see as necessary during our evaluations. We are strictly focused on evaluating and explaining current and potential problems with your well, septic, and/or water systems.
Our Mission

Home Land Environmental provides unbiased testing, inspecting, investigating, and expert advice. As environmental specialists, we aim to inform, educate, and thus provide scientific information for our customer to then make informed decision on their living environments and how it relates to their personal health.

Our Team

We maintain a results-driven team that expects to consistently meet or exceed our own high standards for performance, service, and value for our clients, the company, and our employees. Our reputation for high quality service and professional integrity is our most important asset. HLE fosters a culture of teamwork, mutual respect, and efficiency while creating an environment where people can contribute, innovate, and excel.
