Saltillo tile restoration - HELP!

We bought this house recently knowing that the tile would need to be refinished but we didn't know what we were getting into apparently.

We have watched many videos on how to re emove the old sealer but what we have doesn't seem to match what we are seeing in the videos. The "sealer " is extremely thick. The easiest way we have found to get the bulk of it off of the tile is a razor blade. In some areas it will actually come off in sheets, other areas require stripper and lots scrubbing. Getting it out of the grout is a whole other story.

The last picture is of the kitchen area the we spent 4 very long days on. It looks pretty good but we have a total of 2200 sq ft of it. This will literally take months at this rate.
We need advice please
