Slow startup due to snap programs

I have installed several snaps programs on my Ubuntu 18.10 and it’s taking almost 4 minutes to the computer to startup. I noticed those /loop/dev… that appears at startup and found out that those are the snaps programs loading. I never knew that, if I knew it I would never installed them as snaps. I think there are a lot of people who also do not know about it. Is there any way I could fix this? several of those programs are already set up and running just right and I did not want to have to reinstall them. Does the only way is to resintall them as flatpak or through repository? Any suggestion of what kind of package to use for i don’t any more unpleasant surprises like that?
