Hi, this looks like Cheiracanthum mildei, a Long-legged sac spider. I have some of them moving about actively in my house right now too. I don’t know what they find to eat in the house other than my long-bodied cellar spiders, Pholcus phalangiodes.
I think a common place to find them is on celings, likely eating the mites there.
I have a few about also.
