OK to blow dust out of amp internals with canned air?

Just received a JCM 2000 DSL 50 today via UPS.
The amp was packed very poorly in a thin box with very light foam for an attempt at cushioning.
The box was split at the sides and had a honking hole ripped out of it.

I live very remote in the boonies.
Today a very nice day and my UPS driver arrived with his sliding door open and his window down.
The driver probably covered 35-40 miles of dirt roads to deliver this. With the tears at the box seams and the large hole in the box, the guts are covered with a pretty thick covering of dust/dirt.

Can I use canned air to blow off the internals off once I pull the chassis out without damaging anything?

Thank you in advance.

Other than the dusting, how's the amp?

haha.

No damage on initial eyeballing.

Fired up, no weird noises, no humming, pops, crackles. Plugged in, no sound. Shut it down. Pulled the guard off the back. V1 tube was loose. Plugged back in, sounds beautiful and clear.
