Any tips on cleaning old pedals?

I found a green label MIJ Boss BF-2 for sale locally. Seems to work well enough but needs a cleaning. Any tips? Should I take it apart and clean the knobs, contacts, etc.(switchcleaner?) Or is it best to leave well enough alone? One knob has kind of a scratchy sound, I'd like to fix it if possible...

 

Any tips, must dos, etc?

 

Thanks!

The older boss pedals with the pots that aren't attached to the boards are pretty easy to take apart, but you don't really need to. Just get a can of that contact stuff and just saturate the scratchy pot through the housing. Turn it back and forth while spraying it and it should clear out.
