You're going to want to do a proper clean on this with some quality lens swab materials and liquid cleaning solution. I haven't done it in years, but used to do it regularly with my 5D. Do some googling and you'll see how to do it and with what materials. Basically, you wrap a swabbing cloth around a very narrow spatula, dampen it with cleaning solution, and then a careful wipe or two of your sensor directly.

After cleaning it, aim it at the sky, manually focus as close as possible, and take a shot at minimum aperture (f22 or so). You will see all the dirty dots clearly. Get it as clean as you can, within reason.

You'll find a blower bulb alone will only help a little.
