Even if they don't appear to be visibly trashing the place, rodents instinctively chew on what is accessible to them. It's not ideal if they chew through your furniture and wall insulation, but it will be downright dangerous when they start on electric cables - bad for you and for them. A house is no safe place for a mouse.
Clean up all the food they could have access to. Put all your food in glass or plastic containers with lids. You can store many things in the freezer, too (coffee, sugar, all your grain products). Your trash should also be well sealed.
Call up your local humane society or equivalent, they sometimes have programs to lend effective humane traps (as they can be expensive).
