Musty Basement Floor - Grind Concrete?
 
A couple days ago we had asbestos tiles professionally removed from the basement, but the layer of mastic was left behind. After they were gone our basement smelled horribly musty, which it didn't when the tiles were there. I'm not worried about mold, but I want the smell out asap before it takes over the rest of the house. Would a concrete grinder do the job best/fastest? And then seal it with a concrete sealer. (We have been ventilating using airflow, fans and a dehumidifier. Also used TSP and bleach treatment which helped bring the smell down but it's still strong) Any thoughts? Thank you so much for your help!
