Does anyone have suggestions to remove the following errors?

** Severe  ** ComputeIntSolarAbsorpFactors: Solar distribution model is set to place solar gains on the zone floor,
**   ~~~   ** but Zone ="THERMAL ZONE: BEDROOM 2" does not appear to have any floor surfaces.
**   ~~~   ** Solar gains will be spread evenly on all surfaces in the zone, and the simulation continues...
