Maryland Bathroom Contractor, Realty Resurrections LTD receives EPA Renovation Certification

Realty Resurrections LTD announced today that they have achieved EPA required certification to conduct lead-based paint activities and renovations. This permits the company to provide renovation and repair services in homes and child-occupied facilities that were built prior to 1978.

Ordinary renovation tasks such as demolition, sanding, and cutting can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to individuals. In effort to protect consumers against this dangerous risk, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a requirement that home renovators working in homes, child care facilities and schools that were built prior to 1978 be EPA certified in lead-safe practices.

As of April 22, 2010, federal law now requires that:

  • Renovation firms, such as Realty Resurrections, be certified under EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule
  • Individuals be trained in lead-safe work practices

Thorough training through an eight-hour training course conducted by an EPA certified training provider, along with testing is required to achieve the EPA Renovation and Repair Certification.

John Babyak, the company’s owner, and Steve Montgomery both received training and passed the certification exam with 100% accuracy in May 2010 through the Conner Institute in Baltimore, MD.

Realty Resurrections LTD is a bathroom remodeling and repairs contractor licensed, insured and bonded in the state of Maryland. They have been providing clients in Montgomery County and throughout Maryland with quality renovation services since 1985. The company can be reached by phone at (301) 353-0990 or by email at
