Over time, dirt and grime will build up around the keys and cause them to stick.

You can try blowing compressed air around the keys and that sometimes helps, however for best results you should have the keyboard completely cleaned by having it disassembled by a technician so that the underside of the keys can be cleaned as well.

This is a common service that usually carried out every few years.
