When I came back home with a very dirty sensor and lenses, I took them to a local camera service center (who supported everything but Pentax, however if your are going to service hasselblad, I did not worry about my K100). They cleaned the sensor and body along with the lenses (outside).

I've used the Pentax O-ICK1 sensor clean kit a number of times on both my K100DS & K20D. I've got spots on the sensor from changing lenses in very light rain or salt spray.

The thing is you touch & lift the gum end (a bit like fancy eraser rubber) of the applicator to the sensor and then touch it down on a discardable pad of sticky sheets to transfer the dust. No wiping across the sensor surface, so no worries about scratching.
