Scotch Brite Cylinders

I was cleaning a little surface rust from a cylinder in my engine while preparing to replace my heads after it sat for a week and i used scotch brite because i didn't know what else to do, and i noticed it kind of deglazed the cylinder in that area (the engine was ran with way too high of compression and i think they overcompensated with big jets in the carb and it washed out the cylinders because they are glazed, but it didn't burn oil through the rings, just the valve seals)

the engine appears almost new, i replaced the cam and the bearings barely looked broken in so i don't want to tear the engine down.

if i scotch brite the rest of the cylinders completely will it help me or hurt me?
