If you use a printer in a non-standard mode - like non-standard inks - 3rd party or sublimation inks - you should keep even more an eye on the printer , severe clogs don't happen overnight, so you could catch smaller clogs much earlier and you can clean them away.
Do printers in general clean the printhead automatically periodically as long as you keep the power on?

Yes . Brother printer does this. This is patented by Brother, and nobody want's to buy the patent IMHO. Brother also use PIEZO print heads like EPSON. So it never clogs even after 12 Years or so of use.
