You are correct. This would be a time consuming and tedious project. If it were me, I’d clean it up with a dry scrub brush (still tedious, but not as time consuming) and a shop vac. Then I would put on a clear coat. Probably a flat or matte water based poly to seal it up and limit future dust accumulation. Spray would be quickest, but brushing and rolling would work. As this is a “no-wear” surface, one coat may be enough, but two will catch any holidays in your first coat.

Please note, I have not done this project, so I’m just going on what I think I know.
