I would say keep the drivetrain as clean as you can, and use a good lube like T9. If you want to wash your bike, do not turn a hose on it, as that can get water in the shift housing. And also clean your disc brake rotors with rubbing alcohol every 2 rides or so. Keeping things clean in general makes stuff last alot longer, and operate smoother.
Cleaning your bike is the first step. You notice the little things that way. I like to oil my chain with tri flow, wipe down, then reoil the chain and rewipe. The oil on the outside of the chain collects dirt.
