Here is advice: * Strong paint thinner will after a few applications finally clear it * If you can afford it (and the price is coming down), a pressure washer will work wonders on paint. Once you own one you'll find all kinds of uses for it. * The pressure washer is great advice. I have a pressure washer and used it to remove 30 year old paint off of brick. * Solvents, even carburetor cleaners, are more effective with dry rags to absorb the paint residue. Be sure to dispose of the rags safely or contain them properly for future use. * I have been soaking an area with some red oil based over spray with paint thinner (for approx 1 min) and then going over it with the pressure washer with limited success so far. 1550 PSI pressure washer $100 home depot. or to save yourself some $. Get a quart of paint stripper and wash it off with a garden hose. paint thinner will do it but a stripper is a higher concentrate and theres no sense buying a pressure washer if you dont' need it.

Yes one can pain over previously painted concrete floor. To do this one will first have to get all of the loose paint and debris off of the concrete floor and then simply paint over it.

Yes, as long as it's not flaking off. If it is, use a primer first.
