Hi there, nice find :).
The spider in the image is a Steatoda grossa cobweb spider, commonly called false widows.This is because they are so often confused for widows.
These are quite common in you area, but not dangerous to humans or pets, and certainly nothing to worry about.
I would just leave it to eat pest bugs for me.
You might take a look at these images of your spider:
Heres some images of other common household spiders for future reference:
In you area, the only dangerous spider is the northern black widow (Latrodectus variolus), and anything else will be completely harmless.
If you ever need help with identifying a spider, just e-mail me and I'll be very happy to help you.
