I use mats under tubs in both my racks, with no probs at all. My snake room is 25-27 oC all the time, I am building a hatchling rack that will be heated from behind,

WRONG!
Ball/royal pythons require under belly heat, by placing a heat lamp or any form of back/basking heat, is not good for them and it dehydrates them, which means more misting and more observation.
