It may seem like a stupid question, But what is the reasoning behind the mat? Surely it just makes twice the work as you have to clean it after...

Thank Gordon, I’m still trying to play around with the manual Focus to catch the defects rather than the light.

May also have to try and invest in some different Lumen levels of light.

I love my natural light unit but for light cars it’s a pain.

Indeed it is double the work Sapphire. But one we are happy to perform so as to stay within regulations.
The industrial estate we are on, only has 'Storm drains' Which means they go straight in to the river with very little filtration. (They don’t go to the sewage plant)

So we have to collect our trade effluent (Water used to make money upon, dirty or not) and dispose of it properly. So we catch it and sook it up.
The mats full of punctures and can be a pain but just another step we take to do EVERYTHING as right as financially and viably possible. They make the hoops we jump through them.

Being a static detailer or valater for that matter is a HUGE step compared to our previously mobile life. But I wouldn’t change back now.
