About Our Guest
After seven years in law enforcement and serving in the
military, Laura Spaulding identified a need for crime scene
cleaning while she was working a double homicide. A family asked
her Who is going to clean this up. So with a $15,000 loan,
Spaulding Decon was born. What began as a one woman show today
stands as a franchise with over 55 locations nationwide.
Spaulding Decon is a full service restoration company. Laura
has a master's degree in business administration and a bachelor's
in criminal justice. She has been featured in the Wall Street
Journal Inc magazine and Entrepreneur magazine. Laura has developed
an impressive real estate portfolio. She has purchased hold or
crime scene homes and convert them into beautiful estates. This has
become a labor of love that has produced millions in revenue.
Laura is active in the community and does initiatives such as
Holiday Hoarding Gateway.
