We run daily, weekkly and monthly backuos using imation Ultrium tapes. How often is it recommended to clean the heads for this unit? Is there any specific amount of hours? Thanks

All of the LTO drives that I have seen have cleaning lights on them.  You should only clean them when they ask for it.  Doing that will greatly extend the life of the heads.
