Lightbulb How to clean a pc

Hello all! I bought my pc more than a year ago from Fuwell and I havent cleaned it at all. But after looking inside I realised I seriously need to clean it . I have read a lot of horror stories about how people have spoilt their PCs but static and what not, so I wanted to get some insight as to how to clean the inside of a pc without spoiling it.
Side Note : please suggest methods that wont cost me a lot.

Coincidentally, Today I did a full clean up of my rig. Last time I used to buy a can of compressed air (very expensive ~$10+/can) to blow dust out of the rig/fans but i found this.

Much cheaper in the long run and can use for keyboard, desk etc somemore. Paired with anti-static brush and everything was done within 20mins.

Mini Air Blower

Additionally, i would suggest buying a reputable thermal paste if you want to reapply the one of your cpu.
