Concrete dust problem in basement
I am a first time homeowner. I bought a new home about a year ago with unfinished basement. I see a lot of concrete dust in the basement. I had put air hockey table for kids but the concrete dust makes it impossible for anyone to stay in the basement for long. The concrete dust is everywhere - on the hockey table, ping pong table, packed boxes etc.
I have washed the basement floor several times but the dust keeps coming back. What is the best way to get rid of the concrete dust? I hear about three things - sealant, paint, and something called concrete staining. Can anyone provide some suggestions from their own experience? I don't plant to finish the basement in near future -- just use it for re-creational purposes.
