Hi and welcome to CTH.
This could just be a matter of a dirty keyboard (under the keys).
Turn off the PC.
Turn the keyboard over.
Give it a good shake.
To give it a good clean, I use an old stiff-bristled toothbrush.

I agree, sounds like a dirty keyboard, a can of compress air will help, shake the keyboard upside down tapping lightly against the table will help. If there is a sticky mess under there, you may need to use a little water to clean. Just make sure the keyboard is completely dry before using...
