I'm looking for general guidelines on sealing unfinished concrete
floors in storage areas.  The contractor did not do so at the time
of construction 8 years ago (when the area was *empty*) and you can
now imagine the problems I am having with concrete dust.  Are there
any products specifically recommended (or abhorred?)?  What items
should I remove from the storage areas until the sealer dries
(furniture, paintings, natural history specimens, decorative arts,
archivally wrapped textiles, ethnographic objects, works on paper in
flat file storage)?
