Blow or Suck - Which is Best?

I need to remove several years of accumulated dust and
debris from the inside of an HP3000 Series 40. I will
remove the boards and vacuum the inside of the cabinet
(size of a washing machine), but was wondering what is
the best way to remove dust and dirt from the PC cards
in a way that will not damage them - mechanically or

My default would be to clean with a shop vacuum, but I
was wondering if that might cause static damage to the
components on the board? Would a high pressure air
compressor be a better choice?
