Vacuum Frequency with Aquasoil

Hello Aquascapers,

I have a 75g planted with a Monte Carlo Carpet & Seiryu stone which I dose EI and WC 50% weekly.
Over time, Aquasoil slowly disintegrates becoming mulm.

My question is it better to light vacuum weekly followed by a 50% WC?

or is it better to moderately vacuum once you see some build up that might clog your substrate, then followed by 75% WC ?

The concern here is organic waste and how it affects fishes.
