A Cocaine Sweep is a fast and presumptive surface test that is used to identify the presence of cocaine or crack residues on any surface. This type of single-use drug type can be useful in determining drug use in many situations. In this article we look at five of the many places where Cocaine Sweeps might be used.
1. Checking for Cocaine Use At Home
More often than not, drug use can be a problem at home. It is often a worried parent or partner who contacts us in need of advice and a simple cocaine surface wipe can be used to determine if any surfaces in the house have been used for the preparation of cocaine.
A cocaine sweep can be simply wiped on any surface that drugs may have been on. If cocaine has been present, the wipe will turn blue, indicating a positive result.
2. Checking for Cocaine Use in Pubs and Bars
Recreational use of cocaine by customers of bars, pubs and clubs is a problem for the owners and managers of such establishments. Those in charge have a duty of care in ensuring that no drugs are used by patrons who visit their establishments. Failure to tackle a drug problem in a license premises could result in a criminal conviction. Or the licence to serve alcohol may be withdrawn.
Cocaine Sweeps are ideal for testing any surface in a bars and pubs. Communal areas such as toilets are often targetted by drug users. A cocaine sweep can be used to quickly determine if a problem exists in those areas.
3. Cocaine Sweeps for Hotels
Another growing area of cocaine usage is within hotels and we have been contacted by a number of managers and owners for advice this year. Once gain, a simple wipe of any surface in a hotel room can confirm if cocaine use has taken place. This can be done before room cleaning takes place to confirm which guest was using the drug. Airbnb owners have also found these wipes useful.
4. Cocaine Sweeps for Schools
Unfortunately, the use of drugs is a growing problem in UK schools. It is a problem that affects both the private and state sectors. Cocaine sweeps can be used to control and maintain communal areas in order to ensure that the drug is not being used in these places.

5. Bus Stations
Our fifth choice is a bit left field! We added bus stations to the list as Zoom Testing Cocaine Sweeps were recently used to test a number of public places in Norwich, including Norwich Bus Station! The newspaper journalist in this report used our wipes to test a number communal areas in Norwich.
Danish radio station decided to test local gyms to see if they could find evidence of drug use. The results were astonishing – 9 out of the 12 premises they tested proved positive for cocaine.
7. Public Toilets
The use of cocaine in public toilets is a growing problem for local councils. In 2018, a newspaper in Bath swabbed a number of local places, including loos. Using wipes obtained from Crackdown Drugtesting, journalists found traces of cocaine use in toilets in Monmouth Street, Sydney Gardens and Henrietta Park.
