Planted Tank Obsessed

I have a 10gal that I am breaking down and setting up again. I'm fighting some hair algae and green dust algae as well as a bunch of trumpet snails.
I've had the tank set up for 2.5yrs, with sand substrate. I have used root tabs in the past, but not recently.
Is it possible to somehow rinse it out/clean it so that I can reuse it? Do I need to do anything special to try and kill/prevent the algae?
And when I put it back in, its been a long time since I've thought about substrate, should I add anything on the bottom? I see a lot about potting soil. I will only have some basic plants, nothing high needs. Is this something I need to worry about? I figure that while I have it all removed and cleaned, now would be the time to think if I need to upgrade/change it at all.
