This is probably a silly questions but I wanted to make sure since it's the first time I'll be doing this on an SSD.

I want to wipe out my windows install and start fresh.

Do I just format the drive like always or is there something I should, or shouldn't be doing first on an SSD?

Format and do a fresh install since you want to start with a new install. Just make sure you have backed up the data on the ssd before formatting it.
