'Pruning' Cannas

Hello, I am a newbie when it omes to this stuff so please forgive my question, but how do I "prune" the dead flowers after they have bloomed and now are dead? Thanks in advance.

my opinion: Let the flower petals dry then just strip the petals with your hand. Use as compost or toss for mulch. Most plants of that type need petals left to absorb moisture and nutrients till dry.
