If you shoot a lot, like I do for a living. Then you will see dust on your sensor more. For sure if you shoot F8 to F22+ most of the time. It is a Easy fix in post if there is just a few spots. I found that for what ever reason my D800E gets more dust.... and at first Oil, from in camera a lot more then my other cameras.
Anyhow to make a long story short I have had to Clean my sensor many times to get it real clean. BUT after cleaning when the Camera shutter slaps after shutter release it gets dust right back on. So make sure to clean the out side edge as well..The black plastic part around the sensor.
As there is dust that gets nocked back on after shutter release. Follow the same cleaning procedure as you would clean normally, just add the plastic rim and edges around the sensor..... Rocket blower first then photographic solutions "Eclipse Cleaner" with swabs.. https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=430&topic_id=20394&mesg_id=20394&page= If you do not feel safe doing it Blah blah blah.
I could go on and on about why, what, and if... But if you clean both sensor and Edge it will help a lot. Sorry for the grammer. Good Luck !
