Ceramic and porcelain tile itself does not require sealing but a cement based grout can benefit from it. I'd recommend StoneTech Heavy Duty, found in our on-line store here, Porus Plus from Mircale Sealants, or one of the brands from Aqua Mix. Sealer's Choice and Ultra-Solv are good ones.

Not sure what kind of grout was used.if it was grouted with an epoxy like SpectraLock with porcelain tile you wouldn't need a sealer.
I would look into what type of grout was used.

Shower walls are color thru porcelian; grouted with Laticrete unsanded " latte";
and floors were color thru porcelian; grouted with sanded "latte".
Do I need to seal anything before using?
What type brush on or airasol?

Yes seal the grout like Mike was saying,i use a small piece of sponge muself,be sureto wipe off excess before it dries and picture frames the tile.
