Cleanbuild or not when using yay

When using yay to upgrade AUR packages what is the differences/result between selecting yes or no when prompted with the following question:

Packages to cleanBuild?

When you cleanbuild it deletes all the old files for that package from the yay cache.

My advice is don’t cleanbuild unless your build fails. If it does, then cleanbuild.
