From what I remember the cheaper hubs Giant uses cannot be disassembled. I would just wear out the wheels and then replace them with something with nice sealed bearings and one that can be disassembled hub wise. Or save up the money and get an entire new bike with better components throughout and save yourself a lot of headaches and hassles dealing with lower end parts and spend more time riding in peace and relative quiet at least from bad noises from the bike.

If you absolutely cannot avoid getting new parts or a new bike then use a cloth, an old toothbrush and a bit of degreaser and some elbow grease and clean out some of the old gunk and then maybe spray some tri flow inside.
