Surface does not exist error

I am trying to model a dorm in Sketchup/OpenStudio, and I got the first two floors done. Now, when I open my OSM I get hundreds of errors, "Surface # : The space referenced by this surface does not exist, it cannot be drawn". I have only seen one other question similar to this and it required digging into code and deleting the surface. I am a student, and not to savvy with opening script files and sifting through them. Does anyone know if these errors can be ignored? Or how to get rid of them? I tried running a diagnostics thing and deleting the surfaces, but nothing got deleted and they still pop up. Any information on how to get rid of these, or if I can ignore them, would be awesome! Thanks!
