Cleaning the slats with the cleaning tool can be done in most cases while the machine is running (1-2 hours) resulting in very little or no down time, as you can see replacing the slats verses cleaning is a no brainier cleaning is simply a better option, the tool will pay itself after only 4-6 times of used depending on your machine size.
