The easy answer is anyone can be sued by anyone over anything. The real question is will they be successful.
To be liable in negligence they would have to be injured due to a dangerous condition of your property. Maryland does have a general contractor statute which makes the GC liable for workers comp if the subcontrator fails to carry coverage or it lapses. Your arrangement does not appear to fit neatly into that category though.
As long as you are covered with a general liability policy and a WC policy for your employees you should be fine. How ever you should have copies of any contractors comp policy in case you have a premium audit. Additionally most cleaners are bonded as they have unfettered access to your lease holders office space. Ask for a copy of the bond as well as copies of the cleaners current liability and workers comp policy.
