In pressure chambers any VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) i.e ethanol based products implies an obvious risk of fire. In Italy 1997 10 patients died in an accident caused by a new cleaning company that was not updated on the risk using alcohol in disinfectants in a high pressure environment. 10 patients and one nurse missed their lives in the accident.
