When static electricity in involved, it doesn't matter if the equipment is turned on or off. Well if on, it may crash and need a reboot, but as far as it doing damage, it'll happen either way.
Then again, I've used vacuums and even shop air to blow out PC's, and hundreds of mother boards made for other equipment. Never had a problem, just keep one hand on the ground and your other hand on the air nozzle. It bleeds off the static electricity before it can build up. Even better if it is plugged in, to have a real ground, but many manufactures changed their instructions and now tell you to unplug it, so you don't electrocute yourself.

Better yet, don't operate the laptop in such a filthy area. Are you doing something silly like using it as a smokeless ashtray?
Normally, the fans will wear out and the cpu will be obsolete long before the fan blades fill with enough crud to matter.
