Replacing the charging port could have caused internal damage that now prevents the iPad from charging. Did you have the Genius Bar at an Apple Store run a diagnostic on your iPad before you had the charging port replaced. Was the repair shop certified by Apple?

Is there a easy way to clean it without damaging ipad?
Can you see any debris in the charging port when you shine a strong light into it? If so, first try sucking it out with a small nozzle on a vacuum cleaner. If this doesn't work you could try very carefully to remove it with a toothpick, making sure not to damage any of the contacts. If you don't feel confident enough to do it yourself you could take it to the Genius Bar at the closest Apple Store. Finally if the debris doesn't affect the function of the port, there's no immediate reason to remove it right away.
