Brief Answer:
No, unless the exposure is massive

Detailed Answer:

Cleaning the sofa with rubbing alcohol is fine. It is done routinely. I do not think the fumes can hurt you or anyone around.

The alcohol evaporates quickly and disappears.

Do not worry; you won't be hurt by it unless the exposure is massive.

Hope it is clear to you.
