Should I hire a company to test the air quality in my home?

We do not recommend this. Smoke and soot are known to contain toxic substances. However, testing the air in your home will not tell you if, how, or when a chemical may affect your health. It is not possible to draw cause and effect health-related conclusions in these situations. The best way to deal with smoke and soot is to clean your home as described above.
