Default cleaning canister filter

Hi
I just bought a fluval canister filter about 2 weeks ago to go along with the hob filter I have. Its been years since ive had a canister and Ive totally forgotten how to clean it out. I know its too soon to clean it out now but Im thinking in another cpl of weeks it will be time. Im not running carbon in it just the beads. I know I use tank water to clean it but do I clean everything in it? All the sponges? The beads?
Thanks for your help.
