Sometimes. Try this:

Dirty ( oily ) rotors - clean thoroughly with Isopropyl Alcohol
Dirty ( oily ) pads - clean with Isopropyl alcohol, then use emery paper and scuff the pads. Remember they need to be newly bedded in, so the first stops are not what you expect. If braking power is drastically reduced, replace pads with new ones.

Sometimes the squeal can't be gotten rid of, though.

What kind of brakes has your bike got?
