How many square feet? Get a chipping gun with a thin blade and chip it up. Its the easiest cheapest way. If its a large area, get a grinder.

...........or just use a wet sponge!

If you had said "how much". . . "where it is" . . . "how it got there", someone would know a little more about how to help you. Any tiny tidbit more of information would be very helpful.

A rental store will have a floor buffer with carborundum stones----fast and effective--use a spray of water to keep the dust down.

You will need to hand scrape the corners.---Mike---
