Decommissioning VMs on VMWare v6

I have decommissioned 10 VMs which freed up approximately 12TB.  My question is what more should I do within VC or on the Host to reclaim the capacity.  Should I placed the host in maintenance mode and allow the process to automatically free up the new capacity on the datastores. Should I simply rescan and then reallocate on the VMAX storage array.  

Any assistance will be appreciated.

FYI...I used the Remove From Disk option to delete the VM from inventory.
