We have a paraffin scraper that our Housekeeping staff uses. It was purchased from   American MasterTech Scientific (item CPW04200E, and replacement blades item CPW04201P). We also have perforated anti-fatigue mats in aisles around the cutting stations which trap the wax and can be vacuumed/swept away when the mat is flipped.

Hi everyone;

This may seem like a insignificant question, but we consistently have
issues with injuries to our maintenance staff from cleaning the wax off
of our floors.  Housekeeping has laid sticky layered mats all over our
floors (like large mouse traps), which they peel off layer by layer as
they become wax covered.  Apparently these are very expensive.  Does
anyone have any suggestions?
