Re: Flooring surfaces in Histology
We have linoleum floors. Housekeeping was in about 1 year and 9 months ago
to strip and clean the floors! We use a metal scraper to clean the paraffin
up from the floors... especially the blocking areas and microtomy areas. We
all wear shoes with rubber soles (sneakers), no leather soles or heels are
permissible in our area. And because some wax still gets on the soles of
our shoes it gets tracked to the hallway immediately in front of our door
way. We have sticky mats down to catch paraffin from our shoes and some
unsightly, but efficient abrasive strips are glued to the hallway floor.
Passer bys in leather soles and heels have been known to slip and fall. So
far, we have not had any more accidents in the hallway for two years.
