if it's on the front or rear element, it's easy to clean with a blower or a lens pen. If it's inside...well...there's no helping it I think

I bet you only see sensor dust. Have you tried with a different lens to verify?

Dust on the front lens is normal for this lens.

But if you really got an itchy hands, it's easy to open up that lens,
Just remove the front cover and remove the 3 screws (remember to put some markings on the position)

That's the purpose of markings, to prevent focus problems.
If somehow you forgot the markings, just see where's the location of the original screw.
If there's so many screw markings, set the focus to infinity and aim at a distant subject, then adjust the front optics until the image becomes sharp
