Won't be a problem if you clean it out. While there's active fermentation going on there's no issues with removing the airlock for a bit.

So I can just remove the air lock and clean it?

Even easier if you removed half or a pint and keep it in a separate sanitised bottle in the fridge until the ferment has slowed right down then add it back in........

Yup I agree with this. When using small mouthed jugs it is could to keep some of the mead in the fridge and after a few days you can add it back to the main jug. That keeps it from overflowing into the airlock.
