Concrete dust in Basement


I have a considerable amount of concrete dust in my basement. I would like to finish the floor with Vinyl tile. Does anyone know if I need to seal the floor prior to laying the tile. Or will the tile adhesive act as a sealer as well?

You will need to get up that dust before laying any sealer on it first. Use a shop vac if you have to. Wear a mask.

After I clean the floor can I used the tile adhesive as a sealer? Or do I have to seal the concrete and then use tile adhesive. I was trying to eliminate a step. Thanks in advance for your help.
