I dont think it would hurt it to be honest with you, other wise if you want to go with a little safer of a route, go pick up some canned air to blow out all the dust and other crap that has built up.

Use the vacuum.  Just run the nozzle back and forth on all of the vents.

Sony actually recommends not using canned air because you can end up blowing dust deeper into the console, but in the end it's your PS3 and you can do what you like.

I use an old dustbuster which is handheld and has less power than vacuums used to clean floors, etc.  It seems to get the dust out but still now pulling to much suction on the parts.  Just my 2 cents.
