Sandpaper is a consumable, so you will usually use it until it's no longer performing and then swap it for a new piece.

Sandpaper can get gummed up before it's time to replace, this is especially true for machine sanders. In this case compressed air works well, or rubbing it with the sole of a rubber shoe. It might sound crazy, but it works and might extend the life of your sandpaper by a few more uses.
