I believe that 'A clean saw is a happy saw'.  Plus, it helps to hide my OCD tendencies.

Cleaning not only removes the gunk that can build up and harden around adjustment points, or around the cooling fins, but lets you look for wear, cracks, missing fasteners, etc.

I try to carry a few, basic items with each saw for 'field cleaning': an old toothbrush; a cut-down chip brush; my patented, million dollar bar groove cleaner; and some cut-off popsicle sticks.  These usually let me clean off the saw case, under the covers, behind the bar, the bar groove and oil holes, etc.

Back home, I like to use an air compressor to blast away more stuff, and saw dust deep inside crevices, along with these basic tools, and some spray-on cleaners (409, Simple Green, etc.) to clean and de-grease the case, covers, and guide bar.

Chains are a separate thing.
