Why Should I do Clean Boot or Start in Safe Mode.

I have read articles about troubleshooting of windows performance, and they recommend Clean Boot or start in safe mode.
However I do not understand how would this help troubleshooting if the performance issue happens  when the system is running with its services and drivers loaded can you pinpoint which driver or service that's causing the performance issue..if you are logged to the system with safe mode or clean boot ?

Thank you
