Q: I would love a professional's opinion on cherry wood hardwood floors.

I love the look of cherry hardwood floors. What are the pluses and minus of this wood? How durable is it? Will the rich color hold or will that fade? I've heard I should look into something called a janka rating or the janka scale. How does Cherry do on the janka scale? Also, I wouldn't mind using a wood that is sustainable. Is Cherry sustainable or should I be considering something else, like bamboo? Are there any sustainable woods that look like cherry?
