I had almost countless issues cleaning the a7r sensor. However the last time I sent it out to Sony central for repair they sent me back the officially endorsed procedure they use to clean the sensor there. I scanned the page they sent me and published some notes here:

I don't know how helpful this could be since they seem to use proprietary instruments, but still...

I don't see why the Sony should be any more delicate than the Nikon or Canon sensors. I've used a soft brush, pre-charged by blowing it with canned air, to lift difficult dust from my sensor. Then used canned air, upright in short bursts to finish the job. I've never had a more clean and care free sensor. I've not had to wet clean it yet after 6 months while my D600 required a wet clean within the first two weeks. And then another and another - forever.

If you're not up for the task of wet cleaning, have a professional shop do it. It's not hard. Just use caution and be careful and patient. You can scratch your sensor if you're not careful no matter what method you use.
