Model messes up in OBJ exported file.

I am creating a room that has multiple door exits. (As shown in screenshot) And I need to export to .obj to use within unity, now this room is made with a box that has been intruded and then the door frames have been made with separate boxes, where I have selected one door box, and then the room box that I then used Mesh/ boolean/ union to remove the space within; this I did 3 times. Then I exported as an .obj file and re-imported to maya to check the file and it came out like that (Look at screenshot).

The bottom box is the original, un-exported file, and the top one is the exported file that was imported for checking.

Booleans can create some messy geometry. I'm not sure what the cause of this particular problem is, but my recommendation would be to create a cleaner mesh without any ngons. It shouldn't be too hard to rebuild this shape and stay away from booleans for the time being. That should sort out the export problem.

I've learned to delete history and often. I've had some mesh explosion issues and after deleting history, it stopped.
