Can you paint that salmon colored wall more of a tan color like the bricks? The soot inside would not be my worry as much as that wall color.

Contact a fireplace shop. They have special cleaners for soot.

I agree with Amy Stanley about the salmon wall color. Try a paint color two shades lighter than the bricks or tile.

BTW, many people on Houzz love to give advice on staging for sale. You might consider posting more rooms.

Use black grill paint for the brick inside the fireplace. You'll never have to worry about soot.
