Is it beneficial to clean cd and dvd players lasers with disc cleaners or leave them till they skip, as am unsure if the brush type damage the lasers in anyway ?

What would people recommend as the best way to keep their machines running well ?

It is very rare that cleaning does much on DVD lasers. It seems to have more of an impact on CD lasers, but even there the benefit is marginal in most players. I doubt that the cleaners are very effective, however. When we clean them in the shop we use a lens cleaner, not just a dry cleaning, in order to remove the film that builds up from oils in the air.
