Spaulding Decon is thrilled to announce the grand opening of their first territory in Lafayette, LA!

LAFAYETTE, LA, January 09, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Rebecca Dixon, an ICU nurse and ACLS instructor of over 20 years, decided that she wanted to take her career in a new direction. While she loved helping her community, post covid practices left her feeling dissatisfied and longing for some sense of control over her career. She felt she was at a proverbial fork in the road and needed to consider what direction she and her husband Jerry, a Texan who worked in the oil industry for many years, should take. They wanted the freedom and control to run their own business but also, be a part of a thriving team who services their community by providing very niche services, and that is when they learned about Spaulding Decon.

Spaulding Decon, a full-service remediation franchise best known for its work cleaning crime scenes and hoarder properties, has long been operating in a variety of locations throughout the U.S., but this will be their first territory and first establishment of its kind to service the community in Lafayette.

When asked why they chose Spaulding Decon over other franchises, the Dixons expressed that while they considered a multitude of similar franchises, they were attracted to Spaulding’s vast list of services. “We are a one-stop-shop,” said Jerry. Spaulding Decon is the only franchise of its kind that handles mold/water/fire remediation, drug/chemical decontamination services, Decomposition clean-up, hoarder clean-up and more. Spaulding doesn’t just clean your decomposition, they cut out contaminated drywall, carpets, and tile. They will complete the job so that you don’t have to contact a multitude of businesses for assistance.

The Dixon’s remember a time when a neighbor sadly passed away unattended, and the community had to gather around to help clean a largely uncanny scene. They recall the empathy they felt at that moment for those who had to perform these duties when their loved ones passed and are excited to be able to offer a much-needed service in their community. “A family member should never have to experience trauma on top of grief,” Rebecca said. They feel proud to be able to provide such services for families during their most trying times.

When asked, what is your main objective with regards to your franchise, Rebecca responded with “Our goal is to create a legacy for our family and community. We want to eventually service all of Louisiana. We want to be a household name.”

Spaulding Decon is the nation’s leader in the crime scene cleanup industry. They offer services from accidental death and biohazard cleanup, hoarding cleanup, drug lab cleanup, mold remediation, water damage restoration, rodent dropping cleanup, tear gas cleanup and more. In 2020, Spaulding Decon made the Inc 5000 list with over 608% growth, as well as Entrepreneur Magazine for their Franchise 500 list.
