Would like suggestions on preping a concrete subfloor in a small
bathroom . Removed the old 1'' tile easily , and the surface is in good shape . The homeowner chose a floating vinyl plank and I just want to make sure no little " crumbs " come loose over time . My thinking is that it may get a little noisy .
Is a leveler overkill or will a sealer work just as well .
Thanks in advance

If you removed all of the tile and thinset in not sure what "little crumbs" you could be referring too. Sweep. Vacuum. Fill lows/grind highs. Lay floor.

Im just concerned that if any small bits of cement were to work loose and
under the vinyl over time it could make for a noisy floor .
I could be over thinking this ..... wouldn't be the first time .

Yeah you're doing just that lol. Don't feel bad we all do it. If it's a smooth solid surface now - just laying there isn't going to change that lol.

Bs, the crumbs will make noise and we've pulled 500 sq ft . To make the noise go away. Ardex feather finish works great to lock in particles.
The lady then stood toes up to the wall and called back two days later for noise. We didn't patch there because no one walks there .
Can't see how well you did removal so that limits my input.
