Sealing a cement floor
 
Will sealing a cement floor help to eliminate bad basement odor?

The odor is far more likly to be caused from nold.
Scrub the walls down with a mildicide.
Run a dehumidifyer, make sure you have working gutters, slope the grade away from the foundation, no mulch piled up againt the foundation.
