Question When to do the first bearing cleaning?

This thread has provided much good info and I think I now know what I have to do as far as removal, cleaning solution, drying, etc.

How do you know when it's time for the FIRST cleaning/lube of new bearings?
How many hours would you typically skate before doing the first cleaning/lube?

My situation is indoor quad skating, pretty clean floors, I only notice a little dust on the wheels/trucks so far after about 15 hrs total. Bearings have covers, still rolling about as good as the first time out. Skates stored indoors, cool/dry conditions.

Thanks everyone!
