Most of the time I just shoot a blast of air up through the screen when the vent is open (Like putting the hose on the reverse side of your shop vac...)

If you need to to remove them completely, it usually involves unscrewing the inside trim frame to get to the screen frame and unscrewing that.

For "wet cleaning" my ceiling vent screens, I usually spray them with hot soapy water use a light brush to move the dirt around and use a wet dry vac to pull off the excess moisture. (repeat as necessary).
