Maintenance Ducati style good or bad

Have treated the bike to new pads all round. When i put the bike in for mot the pads were mentioned. Now a few thousand miles further they needed replacing.
I took the calipers off and cleaned all around each piston. Also cleaned where the brake pads fit against the caliper. As this can cause the pads to stick. Renewed the brake fluid completly. Silicon grease around the pistons individually.
My rear pads have also been replaced. The pads started to stick due to muck in the caliper area. This is easily removed with degreaser and a old toothbrush.
Now both front and rear brakes seem to be improved. The cleaning helping them to perform as they should.
