I am a professional something and I installed my own gas logs, so does that 
mean they are "professionally installed"?

If the unit is creating soot, is there enough air going into the unit for 
adequate combustion?  And if the soot is reaching the ceiling then it must be 
leaking from somewhere.  If the exhaust is going out of the chimney, then air 
has to come in from somewhere to replace it, meaning it has to come into the 
house from outside and go from the house into the firebox.  (I think some 
fireboxes can pull outside air in directly without it going through the house
