Cleaning Before Aluminizing

What are everyone's suggestions for cleaning a mirror before having it aluminized? I have polishing compound stains around the edges that don't come off with soap and water and a small amount of plaster on the rough surface of the center hole. Do I need to get all of this off or will the aluminizing people do that?

What are the best methods for cleaning?
