Default GI Noise

I'm having trouble with this scene. For some reason, I'm getting noise in the shadows. I don't know how to get rid of it. I'm using GI and Final Gather and am using an ambient sphere and an area light to help light the scene. I could use some help.

Nm. I cranked up the shadow ray count and it came out fine.

Increase the shadow rays on your area light.
