    Hi all,

    My housemates brought home a second hand bedframe yesterday. It's all clear except for a few worrying black spots on one of the side-supports. What do you think?

    OK, thanks for your help David.

    I checked the galleries and couldn't be 100% sure - I'm guessing the spots are too big or something. They're concentrated in the portion of bed-frame that'd be exactly inline with the upper body, which got me particularly worried.

    Really appreciate your help and, if you're certain, I'll sleep easy. Just scraped dust from a metre of frame crevices and there are no signs of casings or bugs, which I'll take as cause to celebrate.
