The Arctic Butterfly is fine on your D810. I've been using it on my D800E. While there is no anti-aliasing filter, there is still clear glass that provides plenty of protection.
Cleaning the sensor involves a progression of tools and techniques.
1. Use the in-camera sensor cleaning function on start up and shut down.
2. A large blower or rocket blower is great for regular use and clears most dust from the sensor and the mirror box. This is routine maintenance and should be done regularly. Hold the lens mount pointing down, and be sure to blow out the mirror box.
3. The Arctic Butterfly removes all but the most stubborn dust with no risk of damage to the sensor.
4. For stubborn dust, sticky dust, pollen, and other material that can't be removed with prior techniques, a wet cleaning is an easy solution. The frequency depends on the use of other tools and the environment you are in. If you are in the dry western states, this might be pretty frequent, but in the southeast, just a few times a year is more than enough for me.
