To seal or not to seal?

Asked by Mrs Parkes from West Wales: We have just installed Slate effect Porcelain tiles on our new kitchen floor. We have been told they did not need sealing as they are porcelain. Is this correct? Also what method best for cleaning?

gpslancaster says: Most Porcelain don't require a sealer, if it does it shoudl say so on the box that they came in, however due to the rough texture of these type of tiles you will find a coat of Seal and Go, will stop the dirt getting trapped into the nooks and crannys. You can clean The Tiles (if they are to be sealed) with a Product we call Neutral Tile Cleaner, if they are not to be sealed you may have to use something stronger such as Pro-clean.
