That link is pretty thorough. One tip I'd add is if you clean your motor frequently but don't have ready access to a comm lathe you can extend the time between comm cuts by chucking your armature into a dremel tool. Run it slow, 11K RPMs or so and use your comm stick to carefully polish the comm. This works to remove discoloration, but if you have scratches or damage that you can catch your fingernail on its time to cut.
