"Misting" Brakes

Hi there,

My brake pads are continually becoming contaminated. I clean the pads/rotor and put them back in an they keep coming out covered in grime with no power. I have been told this could be down to dirt trapped in the gaps of the brake rotor but I have thoroughly cleaned it twice. Another possibility I have been told about is that my brakes are "misting". I think this is when there is a leak and the oil goes onto the rotor every time you pull the rotor. This sounds highly likley. Does anyone know how to diagnose this or how to fix this? Thanks
