Cleaning nozzle and heaterbreak

Cleaning nozzle and heaterbreak

I’m reassembling my hotend after a leak due to insufficient tightening of the nozzle against the heaterbreak.

Although the nozzle / heaterbreak threads still have some remains of filament I am able to screw them both in without a problem and tighten them appropriately with the heaterblock heated.

My question is, how far do I need to go trying to clean the threads? If I am able to screw the part without a problem does it mean it’s good enough? Or is there an additional purpose for cleaning the threads which I am missing?
