Engineered concrete subfloor - how clean?


I'm preparing to install engineered wood on a concrete subfloor. I pulled the carpet and baseboards and started cleaning. I've been scraping the paint overspray, but wondering how clean does it need to be? I removed a majority of it, but not sure if I can get it all with a hand scraper. Also, there's alot of writing in spray paint by the builders. Do I need to work on that also?

Thanks in advanced!

Brian

You don't need to remove that,and if you have the majority of it up ,your good to go.
