Linoleum backing stuck to hardwood floor

Q: Under my carpet I found hardwood flooring. Unfortunately, there is leftover glue and linoleum backing adhered to the hardwood. I would like to remove the carpet and refinish the hardwood flooring.

What are my options or steps to remove the glue/linoleum?

A: I would highly recommend you hire a professional. This is really not DIY work. A professional would be able to remove the mess with his sanding machine and appropriate abrasive.
