after cleaning a skimmer or even after feeding oily rich foods like roe you will notice your skimmer needs to "break in" again. no big deal, it just needs time to run.
what type of skimmer is this? sorry if it was previously mentioned.
i would dump a gallon jug into a 5 gallon bucket and soak to clean all kinds of things in it ( 100% vinegar ) like powerheads, pumps and so on.. but rinse with just water real well prior putting it back into the tank. also, very important, remove any rubber seals/gaskets before the vinegar bath. im sure you can dilute it, but i dont think vinegar costs much? i use it when theres alot of things to clean. so maybe while your at it, you can soak your powerheads.
