thanks for all suggestions. Much appreciated.
I made my choice of keeping it on the floor and using a vacum to clean it out. I think it fits me the best and ya. Thanks

Don't use metal vacuum attachments - even with plastic it is risky since static charges can jump to mobo. I wouldn't use a vacuum for that reason no matter how careful I am.

You're better off having any PC in a well-ventilated space, just be aware that you'll get more dust off the floor or carpet so move and vacuum carpet regularly, blow the dust out of case with can of compressed air once a year or so.

Instead of putting wood over the carpet, you can use a piece of cardboard cut a bit bigger than the case. That will make it easier to slide on the carpet.

Don't vacuum, using cans of air of air is the safest way.
I use a paint brush to get to the hard spots

vacuums create a static charge. i would recommend compressed air.

I agree that a vacuum cleaner is inadvisable, plus, it just can't do the job that compressed air can. Cleaning the dust out of the heat sink is a high pressure job. :)

Replacing burnt out parts costs a lot more.
Just use the air where you can't reach with a brush
