Probably this is the case, but I meant if you have fan sucking air
in, then put such cover beneath finger protector or between two finger
protectors. But I was just a suggesting, probably someone have ruled
it out, because fan might heat more by trying to suck a vacuum. Or
vacuum cleaners have ~1kW motors because of reason.

I second you if you have just fans pushing air out. System will suck
air from 'easiers' point available.

But dust is the most common material in universe.. :) You cannot get
rid of it easily.
