Default Basement flooring ?

When we moved in this house we carpeted the basement and covered up commercial glue down tile. There is the possibility of asbestos. After a pump failure the carpet got saturated and was removed. Im looking at different options for new flooring. About 50sq ft of the tile has been removed around the perimeter of the basement because it was loose and had moisture under it. All total were looking at about 500sq ft of flooring. My options so far are to patch in the area where the tiles were removed and install new vinyl over the top or tear it all out and install ceremic tile. Under the tiles that were removed there looks like there is a grey paint plus tile adhesive. In order to use ceramic tile I might have to rent a scarifier to clean the cement prior to tile. Anyone have any suggestions
Keep in mind its winter and I cant really ventilate the basement very well.
Any products out there I may have missed?
