Polished Porcelain can be one of the most difficult tiles to seal, this is because of its glass like surface and it has a very low porosity, however it still can stain easily.
Sandstone is a durable formation of quartz grains bound together by other minerals like silica, calcium, clay & iron oxides. Unsealed they can stain & build up with mould easily.
