To Clean or Not

I'm still new at this even though I've had tanks on and off for years.
But this time I spent more $$$ and plated the tank and have a good substrate....Tropica soil.
My plants for the most part have done well without adding any CO2. All though I do add a CO2 boost in liquid form every week.

My question is....should I vacuum my substrate ?

I have 3 Amano and 1 glass shrimp...and 3 Julie corys that really help to keep things clean. I do use Fluval Bio Cleaner.

I don't think I should clean the substrate but I would appreciate your thoughts.
