When Max Schneiderman began his family’s business, it was a grocery store first and foremost. Then Schneiderman’s began to carry a few furniture items and slowly these grew to overshadow the cans of soup and produce until the furnishings finally swallowed the foodstuffs whole.
Now, Schneiderman's Furniture has spread from the Iron Range to spots throughout the Twin Cities. The showrooms stock local and foreign furniture from more than 100 manufacturers. Many items in stock can be customized in color and texture to match a homeowner's current obsession with plastic flamingos.
The carpet connoisseurs at GoodFellas Cleaning degrime, destain, and restore sheen to floors via expert cleaning services. Before steam cleansing, a rigorous vacuuming inhales rogue croissant crumbs and a pretreatment gets to work on pesky stains. GoodFellas' fiber aficionados annihilate dirt, dust mites, and unsightly blotches using a truck-mounted system that has 20 times the suction of handheld carpet-cleaning machines and 2,000 times the suction of a straw. After floors are squeaky clean, a protectant is applied in high-foot-traffic areas to repel oil- and water-based stains and buttered feet and then the carpet is deodorized. The entire process is safe and nontoxic, allowing babies, pets, and baby pet rocks to roll around on the rug postprocedure. This Groupon also gives customers 20 percent off additional services, including upholstery, tile, and grout cleaning.

The experienced technicians at Super Seal Sealcoating have been seal-coating driveways and parking lots for 16 years. They begin the seal-coating process by cleaning the asphalt with brushes, brooms, and blowers, before mixing an asphalt emulsion with slate, sealer, and other additives to strengthen and bind the product without using coal tar or duct tape. Lastly, they power-edge the border of the driveway and apply the emulsion with a 4-foot microbristle brush for a uniform finish. Once the techs are finished, driveways must be blocked off for 24?36 hours to prevent marks from car tires or buffalo stampedes. In addition to sealing surfaces, techs also use hot rubberized fillers to fix cracks.
The fixit folk of All American Sealcoatings help homeowners and other asphalt-owners maintain driveways and pavements with a range of repair and refurbishing services. They can repair driveway cracks and sidewalk fissures with a rubberized material before coating the asphalt with a two-step sealcoat, which protects paved surfaces from the rigors of the weather and the weight of a wayward mastodon. Patching, paving, paint-striping can ensure the longevity of a new parking lot, and resurfacing can fix "sunk aprons"—depressions found at the border of driveways.

In addition to general carpet upkeep, techs can oust pet odors from rugs, clean homes, and remove floodwaters created by the tears of a weeping giant.
