With CPI cleaning systems, clean floors, walls, ceilings, and air better, greener, faster, safer. It’s not clean unless it’s 4D Clean™.
When Creative Products International founder and CEO Dave Maurer invented an injection-molded laundry organizer for his senior Mechanical Engineering project at Western Michigan University, he had no idea he was going to spend his career innovating commercial cleaning processes and products. But that’s exactly what happened.
After gaining experience across a wide range of companies and industries, Dave recognized areas of improvement for commercial cleaning. Over time, he formulated innovative, game-changing ideas around four dimensions of clean: floors and horizontal surfaces, walls and vertical surfaces, ceilings and fixtures, and air.
He formed partnerships with industry-leading commercial laundries, hospital groups, school districts, contractors, and hospitality organizations, and he developed microfiber products and cleaning systems to meet their needs.
Long-term relationships he nurtured over the years allowed him to secure quality manufacturing overseas and enabled the product innovation that CPI is known for.
Hallmarks of 4D Clean™ and the CPI cleaning systems include:
• Eliminating cross-contamination using color coding and clean mops
• Improving the quality of cleaning by “cleaning with clean”
• Pre-treating mops with cleaning solution vs. mopping with dirty water in a 5-gallon bucket
• Picking up dirt and removing it instead of spreading it around
Not only does 4D Clean™ lead to a better clean, it leads to better productivity. Workers gain more time to clean areas that may otherwise be left alone. Learn more about 4D Clean™.

Dave Maurer, Founder and CEO
Dave Maurer’s first “cleaning job” was as the primary engineer responsible for setting up maintenance and cleaning programs for check valves in nuclear power plants. He then spent time developing cleaning systems for a nationwide cleaning and restoration company, establishing distribution networks for powered cleaning equipment, and developing cleaning products for specific markets.
This wide range of experience with commercial cleaning helped guide Dave’s innovation of a new microfiber cleaning system nearly 20 years ago, which set the stage for Creative Products International. His microfiber combined with specifically designed, easy-to-use cleaning tools create a powerful system for 4D Cleaning™.
