Any good way to access/clean the laser drive itself?

I have about 6 players and they all work but on occasion, do not read a disk initially.

The majority of these players are from Goodwill so very dusty. Is there a good way to clean inside the drive itself? I've had the covers off and have blown out what dust I can but I imagine inside the drives it is extremely dusty and perhaps even the laser lens could be cleaned with alcohol and a swab? IS there a safe way to open the drive or its it advisable to spray canned air inside the drive opening?

Just remove the drive from the unit, undo the cover and clean away. Just beware that the metal edges can be sharp. There's nothing dangerous inside. The laser is harmless especially since there's no power.
