Particle Board?

I wonder if what you have is actually OSB, which is resistant to water. If it is actually particle board, and it has standing water on it, the only thing you can do now is to have it ripped up and replaced with OSB or plywood. Particle board soaks up water like a sponge and looses its' strength. OSB can withstand some water, but it would be a good idea not to let water stand on it for long periods of time.
Good Luck!
