I would take the top off, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment (and any other attachments you can use to get to nooks and crannies) to suck out the bulk of the dust and then blow it out. You can use a shop vac for both purposes (reverse to blow). Never a bad idea to pull connectors and re-seat them to clean contacts either. Just be careful to not damage pins or reverse the seating. I had a bad tech mess up a power amp for me once doing that.
