Risks of doing soot / smoke restoration on your own

Any type of soot can be ingrained deeper into the surface if improperly handled, thus causing more damage and a more expensive remediation process. Additionally, the restoration should be done sooner then later because soot can damage everything it lands on within hours, sparing nothing. Walls, furniture, items made of plastic, marble, clothing, bedding etc. The time you will waste just trying to figure out what type of soot you have to cleanup can already lead to irreversible damage.
Three different types of soot

Wet Soot :
Caused by a blazing low fire which produces a gluey and strong odor and can leave surfaces badly stained.
Dry Soot: Caused by high temperature and fast burning fire. The soot left by fire appears to be light dust and generally does not cause much staining.
Protein Soot: This soot is the kind that you may not see but can cause much damage just the same. It can tarnish the varnish and paint of the surfaces it touches. It also emits a very strong foul odor.
