Skimmer Cup?

Does the skimmer collection cup work better when the chamber is clean or dirty? The reason why I ask is that, I notice after I clean the cup it takes a while for the skimmate to start coming up the cup again.
It is better to ask for forgiveness then to ask for permission..........

Clean. Dirty usually promotes the bubbles to pop earlier.
