The keycap should pull of if your careful, it goes on a + shaped spline
like the old Lego technical set stuff!

TBH I don't think you will gain much though as you really need to attempt
to dissasemble the switch, If you do want try something without desoldering
though you would be better off with contact cleaner spray or some
isopropryl achohol than air as is is more likely corrosion than dust.
