If they are new, I would apply a coat of sealer about once a month for the first couple of months, after that, maintain it once a year or so, based on use.
Sealer can be had from any tile and stone center or even Lowes/HD. You just wipe it on, let it set, and wipe any excess remaining on the surface off. Instructions will be on the product.

how do you seal it? Is it just a spray and wipe thing or what? Will they look shinier or anything? Thanks for the help...
