All of us here at All Phase Carpet and Upholstery of Boulder hope and pray that all of you are safe and dry after undergoing one of the most traumatic flooding experiences in recent Boulder and Colorado front range history- The Boulder Flood.  We normally do Carpet Cleaning in Boulder and Carpet Cleaning in Niwot and the rest of Boulder County for all of our wonderful clients who we have served for over 20 years.  During this time of emergency we have suspended Carpet Cleaning in Boulder so we can respond to numerous emergencies our clients are experiencing during this unprecedented weather event in Colorado.  I have been putting together a list of resources, but just received several emails and Twitter notices which should fulfill quite a bit of your needs- I will add to this blog as I find new sources of flood resource and rebuilding information- so come back and check on a regular basis:)  We are praying for all of you and know that if we all work together we know that Colorado will come through this weather event stronger than before.

Here are the Boulder Flood Resources I and others have located for you so far:

Here is a link to a partial list of businesses and organizations that are providing help to victims of the Colorado floods:

Be very careful of out of town remediators who tell you  that mold is a huge problem in your home or business- verify the problem with several companies before doing mold remediation in Colorado.

One of our BNI members (Lisa Louise Lindsey) has given us a great resource for new carpet and flooring which she has used many times and trusts- she says: “They have a huge crew of installers, estimators and an enormous selection. And do very nice work.”
