SILVERTHORNE – Kevin Boylan, owner of A Kinder Carpet in Silverthorne, plans to donate 10 percent of his profits to the Summit Foundation, continuing a tradition he started with the Family and Intercultural Resource Center.

“I’m trying to give something back to the community,” Boylan said. “It’s worked out well in the past. People liked it. If they’re going to get their carpets cleaned anyway, they might as well give us a call.”

Company officials say they’re always brainstorming for ideas to help nonprofits in the county. In the past, they have helped deliver Thanksgiving dinners to those who might otherwise go without; they plan to do so again this fall.

The company also will offer carpet cleaning services for churches at no charge this summer.

A Kinder Carpet has expanded into water damage restoration with its company United Drying. That firm provides drying equipment rentals, dehumidifiers, air movers, and mold prevention services throughout the United States.

A Kinder Carpet is located at 590 Adams Ave. in Silverthorne and can be reached at (970) 668-0646. United Drying can be reached at (970) 262-7903 or (800) 379-6888.
