Of course, daily brushing really helps to prevent matting, but they occur anyway. It takes patience, but what I did with my collies feathering (and DLH cats was to cut into the mat towards the body; then use the brush with teeth and try again gently. You continue this until the mats can be combed out without pain. What's most difficult to remove is mats behind the ears. They are somewhat hidden from vision, and can get pretty bad before you find them. The pet stores uses clippers on those, I believe.
