To clean them, I use a shop vac, soft bristle paint brush, compressed air, etc. If it's bad enough, I pull it apart and wash out the case, then use the paint brush to dust the components off.
You can use fan filters to keep dust and debris out of the case. If you don't want to fork out the cash for them, you can use panty hose as a cheap replacement, which works almost as well but doesn't look as nice.
