Read the performance tips that simsaladimbamba posted. That should help. With rare exceptions, Macs don't need to be defragged, "maintained" or "cleaned". OS X takes care of itself.
i read that. im just wondering why it seemed to load faster with my older os.
Because Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is in many ways more responsive than Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. In order to avoid slow startup times, you could use the SLEEP feature of Mac OS X.
Generally, OSX does a really great job of keeping up the drive performance. There really isn't much you need to do. It doesn't hurt once in a while to run the "repair disk" and "repair disk permissions" from the recovery partition. You can also download a free app called Onyx that does a good job.
If you are running Bootcamp with Windows, then you can defrag that partition from within Windows, but only do this if you are running a regular mechanical platter hard drive. If you have a Solid State Drive, then defragmenting is not necessary and supposedly can damage the drive as well. So don't do it if you have a SSD in your machine.
