Problem in using robot vacuum for concrete flooring
The main problem for concrete flooring is the potential scratches that can happen when you have stained or wax flooring. What happens is that some of the robot vacuum’s front wheels and brushes have leave marks on the flooring when they go about their daily cleaning. The wax on concrete flooring is especially open to such damages so this is something you need to watch out when purchasing a robot vacuum.
On the other hand, if your concrete flooring has no waxing, there is lessor probability of the robot vacuum cleaners leaving any marks on the floor.
For concrete flooring with no waxing or staining: any of the common robot vaccum cleaners will suffice. The roomba and scooba works especially well on concrete flooring so you will have no problems there. See my review on the latest Roomba 880.
For concrete flooring with waxing: The Ottoro S100 does not use any brushes to pick up the dirt. Instead, it uses pure air suction which means it will not leave scratches on the waxing. However, the Ottoro S100 is currently only available from Germany and Korea so you might need to ship it in, which will increase your shipping costs.
