If the brakes were serviced and the problem started after that, I would check all points of connection for the slightest sign of leaking. Brake fluid has the unusual property of attracting water. If it does so, it will get in the system and when under pressure, boil or vaporize, generally minimizing effectiveness, ie; no brakes. You may wish to have them flushed again, perhaps by a different shop or mechanic. If there are no failing parts, in theory, the problem should go away. Cheers.
