Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Long-bodied Cellar Spider (Pholcus sp.). As long as they keep their cobwebs somewhere out of sight these earn their keep around the house as they prey on less desirable things, things that are surprisingly bigger than them including other spiders. They are timid and unlikely to bite, if a bite were to occur it would likely be a non-event (little to no reaction, everyone’s immune system is different though!).
