Sealing after Asbestos Removal

I'm having an Asbestos abatement crew come in and remove my 9"x9" floor tiles and furring strips in my 1950s built home in basement.

As an extra precaution after removal, before re-finishing, I'm wondering if it's a good idea to put a paint over the walls and floor to seal everythin up. Something like Zinsser WaterTite? Thoughts?

Re: Sealing after Asbestos Removal

Fill all the holes left by the furring strip removal with either hydraulic cement or concrete patch. No need to allow holes in an otherwise non leaking boat spoil your day.

If the abatement crew did their job, there should be no asbestos left for any problems.

Re: Sealing after Asbestos Removal

The asbestos abatement crew got rid of the asbestos and cleaned everything up - not sure what there is to gain by a coat of paint other than making it look clean. I'm not fond of paint on basement floors.
