[Histonet] Paraffin on floors

We have used the industrial type rugs , seen at entrances of buildings, and 
place these at microtomes and embedding areas.  They are vacuumed to remove 
paraffin trimmings.  We had to go to rugs as our floors became so slippery, 
safety was an issue - particularly after a visiting researcher slipped, 
went backwards and if he hadn't caught a doorknob on way down, would have 
cracked his skull on a concrete floor
