Too many great pieces get left behind for the simple reason that people fear upholster because of bugs and the like... Fear no more!
Most vendors who do business in second hand upholstered goods are required by the State of Ohio (other states have similar rules) to spray the items to protect against bugs and other "goodies" - this is what they spray them with.
Even if you acquire something at a garage sale or other temporary vendor - you can do use Steri-Fab yourself. Many hardware stores carry this (I know of our local True Value does) and it's also available on Amazon.
