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.
