Brief Answer:
Ventilate the room well.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
Providing you are cleaning your sofa in a well ventilated area, there will be no harm to your health.
I would advise ensuring the windows and doors are open and you do not use the room for an hour or so after you have finished.
I hope this is of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
