Not really - think of it as a Windows PC. Nothing will clean drive space as well as a complete drive format. Ever notice how fast your PC is after a clean install? You can delete apps from today till tomorrow on a PC, but it will never get you what a format and clean install will. I wipe and reinstall my BB OS each time I upgrade the OS. I have noticed over time, that that the OS eventually corrupts and memory space gets reduced. I wipe my PC's every few months as well...
