Why are We still Waxing Floors?

Besides being wastefull, it is bad for the patients to have the chemicles used from stripping and waxing, particularly in areas used 24-7 like the ER and ICU, when there are industrial no-wax floors available. When they re-did our ER they replace the floor with the same type tyles that have to be waxed. No-wax can be econimically steamed clean for sanitation and even Wal-mart uses the no-wax.
