How to clean the CCD and the Lens Zoom Unit parts

As you may know, all compact Cameras that have a collapsed zoom lenses parts link this camera is very sensitive to dusts and sands. and after a day on the beach you may have this kinds of cameras defective. because some sand particles may go in between the lens parts and make it jammed.

And because the sand is very tiny it may go through the shutter and may jam it too and make the pictures brighter and blurred because it cant shut correctly in time. also some of the sand particles may settle on the CCD and cause some blind spots can be seen on all produced photos, located in the same place.

before buying a new part of the lenses set, I need to clean it up first, cleaning the camera lenses parts and the CCD.

Thank you in advance.
