Dust on my "new" E1

Hi, I'm having sleepless nights because of dust on my recently bought "demo/display" E1. I counted four relatively big spots and several small spots. I think I've counted around 20 in all after doing auto levels in Photoshop. The focusing screen is also kind of dirty.

I called the local Olympus distributor and they told me they don't have experience cleaning CCDs. But they asked me to send the camera in. I have no idea what they will do with it.

I found a local guy who sells Sensor Swabs and the Eclipse solution and he has volunteered to clean the E1 for me using his products. Should I bite the offer? Am I risking anything?
