Default Help removing T. gigantea eggsack

I noticed last night that the house spider that's been patrolling my bedroom for the last month or so, has made an eggsack and the corner of my bedroom. I don't really want 100s of tiny spiders running about my room, and my partner wants to take the hoover to it, which i object to. What would be the best way, if possible, to remove the eggsack and spider without causing any harm to the eggs?

Just remove it gently using forceps like you would with a tarantula eggsac if it was webbed into a corner.

If you want to make sure they survive, use the little hammock method for rearing them, and then let them go after they hatch.
