Remove liquid nail from exterior brick

Hi all,
I am removing a sunroom the previous owners installed. No idea what they were thinking the yard is way too small. Anyways the installer used liquid nail to the attach the sheet rock to the exterior brick wall. Does anyone know of a way to remove the liquid nail with minimal damage to the brick.

Right now the only thing I could think of is a hammer and chisel. I hope there are better alternatives. Thanks

From the Liquid Nails website:

How can Liquid Nails products be removed?
Refer to the attached page for specifics. In general, Liquid Nails adhesives & caulks can be scraped off when they are softened either by:
1. Heating above 140F with an electric heat gun or blow dryer.
2. Soaking the adhesive with petroleum jelly, mineral spirits or Liquid Nails Adhesive & Caulk Remover for several hours to several days. (Note that mineral spirits and/or our Remover are not recommended for tub surrounds, vinyl, plastic, painted or varnished.)

Here is link to the other page.

Hope this helps.
