You will probably need the disc, either to run the +Apple Hardware Test+ on it, that's tailored to your particular hardware.
You'll also need a disc for the version of OSX you're running, if you have to do a +*Repair Disk+* on your Mac, or to reinstall OSX, or to restore a full system from Time Machine backups.
But just booting up from your Install disc won't "clean out" your computer.
Are you having some sort of problem with your Mac? If so, what, exactly?
