Regular mentainence of Canon 70D

Do semi-professional DSLRs like Canon 70D require regular mentainence like cleaning of sensors, mirror lense etc? When I am not using my Canon 70D I usually dis-assemble it, remove the battery, place it in that holder, remove the lense, seal the sensor as well as lense, and keep everything inside the case. Thankfully there hasen't been a single instance, where I kept the sensor exposed for more than a minute.

Therefore...

1) Do I require to clean the sensor and mirror regularly?
2) Is it safe if we clean the sensor mirror or lense, all by ourselves? Or should we give it in Canon service center for clearning?
3) Are these sensors, mirrors such a delicate thing, that one slight mistake (dust) can land up our DSLRs in a repair factory?
