Casino chips are fairly sturdy and are made to take a fair amount of abuse, but they do get dirty and unattractive.  Cleaning a chip that is dirty, but is otherwise in good condition, can improve it's appearance.  However, there are exceptions.  Cleaning a chip can actually damage it or give it an unnatural appearance.  Certain types of chips are more delicate than others.  Not all dirty chips should be cleaned.
