I think that i would find a real radiator shop
not a shop that also does radiators

have them check it out & give you a opinion
If they say that you need to get it cleaned out, they could be saying that you need to get a regular flush, or cleaned out with Steam
Actually i would have them inspect it & get an opinion
if they say that it needs some work
Pull the radiator yourself & give it to them
Let them ROD it out, which involves removing the tanks & running a flat rod through the water passages of the radiator core, then they put it all back together & usually paint it.
You then put it back in your vehicle & likely never have to worry about it again
IF on the off chance they can't fix the issue, try to get a new CORE through the radiator shop, not from your local parts store

Good Luck
