Sooner or later, more Mid-Columbia businesses are going to try to bring their workforce back into their buildings.

As a first step toward that goal, MacDonald-Miller Facility Solutions is offering building confidence reports through its Comeback with Confidence program.

Pat Roberts, general manager for MacDonald-Miller’s Eastern Washington office, said many businesses and workers don’t know what to expect when the day comes for people to return to their offices.

Comeback with Confidence checks a building’s readiness for workers to return, said Nicole Martin, MacDonald-Miller’s marketing manager. “It is a new program, and because MacDonald-Miller has a culture of continuous improvement. It was easy to pivot and provide this service.”

MacDonald-Miller sends its team through a building, checking on several indicators.

“We want to help businesses get the ventilation system clean. Same with the water system,” Roberts said. “We want to make sure the water is safe. Some buildings haven’t used their water systems in months, so there could be buildup in the pipes.”

As scientists continue to learn more about Covid-19, it’s important to keep heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems clean and running at an optimal performance.
