MAF sensor cleaning

I'm about to give my E30 a full service, new fuel, air and oil filters, new sparks plugs and change of oil of course. However the car is running a bit rich, only when I accelerate, so I also want to use nulon "foaming air intake cleaner" to clean the throttle and pistons crown and CRC MAF sensor cleaner to clean the MAF sensor.

I don't know if this is necesary to make it run better and more economical or if I could really stuff things up even more. I know the MAF sensor is fragile but I know to handle with care.

P.S the car seems to take a long time to pick up speed when taking off at the lights for example.

I have the BMW E30, 318i with the M40 engine.
