Default Steering and Brake Fluid replacement?

99 S80 2.9 130K miles.

Does anyone know when to replace the steering and Brake fluid on these cars. I have 130K mileson the car and the steering and brake fluidshave never been replaced.And do they have to be flushed or just replaceing them would be ok. And are there any specific kinds of Brake and steering fluids that have to be used for Volvos. I found this one mechanic although he is not Volvo specific but he does work on all import cars including Volvo's. So I just want to be careful on not having him put the wrong fluids in.
