If you apply an Impregnating sealer be careful, there is little to no absorption to porcelain tiles and if the sealer sits on the surface it will actually attack and hold the dirt.

On all of my porcelain install jobs I seal the porcelain before I grout. I seal with and Impregnating sealer. I think if you do a deep clean and then let dry and seal with a impregnating sealer it will help alot.
