After range visits, I just take down to the major components to clean, as with any semi-auto pistol. The polymer frame and the "works" inside can be dunked in a bucket with water/Simple Green solution, and scrubbed with a toothbrush. Then dry thoroughly with a hair dryer, and lube.
I only do this maybe twice in a yr.
With the "normal" cleaning, I'll wipe out the frame internals.
You wil need to make the call on when to takedown the pistol further, striker,etc.
Inspect your polymer guide rod after 1000 rnds.
Mine had a lot of wear after 1500 rnds, so I replaced it.

Guide Rod Inspection:
With the slide locked back/open, the polymer guide rod can be inspected. The other tell-tale sign for mine was that cleaning materials were getting caught on the rod because it was chewed up a bit and the surface was rough.
(Cause: Too many +P rounds? Rough inside surfaces of the spring?)
