There is smoke damage in my home. Should I be concerned about the air quality inside of my home?

Soot or ash inside your home can cause odors that can linger for a long time. You should thoroughly clean those parts of your home with smoke damage. Possessions or parts of your home that have been burned should be discarded. See the answer to “What can I do about the air quality in my home as a result of smoke, soot, or ash?” for more guidance.
