Welcome to the Community Forums.
Using a compressed air can can help removing the dust from the cover. Direct it parallel to the base like a sweeping action laterally so that the air would not be directly straight on the bottom vent. Try applying the compressed air intermittently then turn it on allowing the fan to blow the dust to the rear vent and shut down to re apply sweeping strokes again.
You can call tech support if they may be able to service the machine specially if you feel that there is a tendency to overheat during usageor if there is performance issue.
Here is the hardware manual for base cover removal (page32) if you are interested but consult tech support if they can possibly guide you through it or if it is better that they take over the service for you.
I hope this helps answer your query.
