Black marble stain

About 3 weeks ago we were having the final touches done in our walk-in shower , when the installers finished with the final grout installation we noticed that they had dropped a couple of small areas of charcoal grout on our black marble corner seat and also on the black marble curb.
My question is;
1...is there any way we can remove the grout stains ?
2...If we get the stains removed do we need to clean and seal the marble ?

Thank you
Liz

Welcome, Liz.

First, if you paid to have this shower built, you should not be doing anything other than calling your contractor and advising him of the problems. The job isn't finished if the final cleaning was not done.

Without some photos of what you've got, our folks are not likely to be able to offer much advice. Along with the photos, they'll want to know very specifically the type of marble you have if, you know that, and very specifically what grout was used. Brand name, make, and model.

If you can provide a pic and the type of grout used I can give you a procedure for removing the stain
