Removing Parquet Flooring

I installed about 1500 square feet of pre-glued parquet flooring about 2 years ago over painted sub-flooring. Hurricane Sandy sent a tree through my roof and flooded the floor, causing the parquet to float. As it dried, it looked like someone had pleated it - it became 3-dimensional and very hazardous.

It needs to be totally removed so new flooring can be installed. Is there a really fast way to remove those tiles that are still well stuck? Is there a fast way to remove all of the glue residue from the sub-floor?

Many thanx for your help.

Maybe rent a walk behind floor scraper.
