Hi, I clean new construction and wondered if there is an easier way to remove paint overspray and spatter from luxury vinyl floors. Most have spatter all along baseboards and large spots all over the floor especially in toilet area etc. I have been scrubbing with fine steel wool and scrapping big spots with razor but it has become labor intensive. Overspray on glass I scrape but floors scare me as they are pricey and one slip of the blade and I will be paying $$$. I broke my wrist and this has come to the point I might be finding another job as it is ridiculous the amount of paint I am cleaning. Tips on removing from tile, range burners for gas stoves and fireplace inserts would be greatly appreciated.

It is likely latex paint so lightly spray water on it with a spray bottle, let the water sit, then gently scrub off the overspray with a coarse rag or soft bristled brush. I would never use steel wool or a razor blade.
And as has already been mentioned, have a sit down discussion with your contractor about the neatness of the paint crew.
