If I understand correctly, you removed the fan/heatsink from the processor?
That was not required.
That silver layer under the heatsink is the thermal paste, which is used to increase heat transfer from the processor, to the heatsink.
To clean it off, use rubbing alcohol.
After the old paste is removed, and the heatsink and processor have been cleaned, you will have to re-apply more paste, or run the risk of frying your processor.

i would be afraid of static with a vaccuum. But if its what you want to do go for it.
