This ususlly happens when dust collects inside the wheel and block the optical censor inside.
It's not hard to open and clean a mouse wheel for dust, but some models have a little spring in tension that may fly away (the one that make the mouse wheel to stop)

Or possible Teflon feet. Rubber feet would prevent the mouse from sliding. : P

If you really don't want to open your mouse, you might first try blowing some air into it from around the wheel to potentially dislodge any debris.
ok i will do that
