How to clean dust from 2020+ Mac Mini case?

Based on the new ‘not-accessible’ for upgrades/replacements design that has become common for Apple designs, how does one check and if needed, remove dust from the cabinet and cooling fan for proper maintenance? (The bottom plate obviously CAN be removed… but not as easily as the 2012 and 2014 models!) Any help would be appreciated!

This model’s reparability issue comes from lack of parts and soldered board components, cleaning on the other hand is trivially easy, 10 minutes max and you are already at the bottom of it.

Also I don’t see any possibilities of this thing dusting up and blocking cooling anytime soon.
