Shabbat 147a (the Shulhan Aruch as well) would Asur you from cleaning this up. Actually, it is an Isur Deorayta of Melaben (see Siddur Ish Masliah at the end).
...I'm not sure how much you can do to actually clean this, other than scraping up what's external to the couch. Cover it with something that smells nice until after Shabbas?
