No, if you run a chkdsk repair (X:\chkdsk /r) and then reinstalled Windows it would not cause any harm.

However, what's the point if you're going to reinstall Windows? Chkdsk does not fix HDD physical problems. Just enable SMART disk monitoring in your BIOS, and when reloading Windows do a disk reformat in the process.

Clean All securely overwrites data and also clears the boot sector which is sometimes necessary if it has corruption - however the Clean command alone can do this.

To check the condition of your HD and repair it or the file system, run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan followed by Disk Check.
