Talking good house keeping advice

Can anyone tell me what is the best way to clean the sump area of my tank?
I have a 3ft tank with a cabinet, in this I have a sump that takes up most of the space. I can fit in a protein skimmer, light ant power supply.

Can anyone tell me how to keep it clean so the electricals will not corrode, and my timber will not rot. I would also like to keep the salt creep away.

I would like to set up good habits now to take me through the rest of my hobby life
