The best course of action to begin with will be to make your home have as few openings available for them to get into the house through. Especially around the lower parts of the house. The higher up an opening is in the house, the less likely that they will climb that far, but still be aware that it isn’t unheard of them getting in via roofs.
It would be advised to survey the inside and outside of your home as best as you can and find areas with potential openings that need to be sealed.
Additionally, looking for damage on doors/windows or any other areas that may get worn over time can ensure you find potential entries for rodents before they get chance to.
Keep things clean. Although mice won’t be put off by a clean environment available to them, poor sanitation will more likely attract them. In particular, keeping foods stored cleanly (even in airtight containers) can be useful to avoid attracting any mice or rats who would smell the food.
Of course, if you want any further advice on this matter, you may want to discuss this with your local pest control and perhaps have them survey your home to best advise.
Hope this helped! "
