Have you tried blowing it out with canned air?

Using canned air should clean the dust out, just don't tip the can or the liquid could come out. If the HSF is hard to get to with the spray air, you can remove it. You will need to have thermal paste and something to clean the old paste off with before you begin.

Be careful when removing the heatsink from the CPU as I have seen the suction between the heatsink and the CPU pull the CPU right out of the socket.
