One or the other. You don't need to do both.

If you're taking it in to be serviced, it doesn't matter what condition it's in. If you're going to blow air through it yourself to dry it out, you're doing that to hopefully avoid the need for service.

Not the end of the world, Jason. As ChrisM says, everyone does it every now and then. Of course, it does make the argument for why you want something like an Atomic T2, which is all titanium and which won't rust or corrode . . .
