** my two cents
Well, I'm not scraping the entire thing and getting it all down to nice and shiny concrete. But whoever installed this carpet didn't do a very good job, or they applied more adhesive to old adhesive they didn't bother to get up because there are quite a few high spots or areas with really thick amounts piled up. So, I'm mainly just giving it a once over and really tackling the trouble spots hard, which there are many, because as you said I am using a floating floor so it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect.
