My basement is unfinished and has a French drain. The bare cement floor is dusty and it tracks footprints all over my hardwood floors. I want to stop the dust from forming.
I have tried to find this dust proofer at Home Depot but no luck. They don't carry it. Neither does Lowes.
They suggested I use a water proof sealer. This seems strange because my floors don't seem wet or moist. Doing some research, some sites suggest a concrete sealer like this one from Behr.
I'm a new home owner and this all new and confusing to me. Do I need to wet proof? A sealer? Or do I need to special order a dust proofer?
I plan to sweep, shop vac, and soap and water wash prior to application. Anything else I need to do?
