Rddiator Efficiency

I have radiators connected to galvanized pipe in my house. The house was built in the '30s--not sure how old the radiators are. I'm wondering if old radiators eventually fill with crud and sediment that reduces their heating efficiency. If so how can I flush them?

Actually very little crud builds up over time. Especially in a hot water system. Steam builds a bit more but it is rarely worth the time & effort spent removing & cleaning the rads.
