particle board is bad for flooring

I wouldn't put it over particle board. We had carpeting over particle board and had a subtle moisture problem with our A/C condensation overflow pan which got the particle board soaking wet and caused it to expand and warp badly...we ripped up all the particle board and carpeting and replaced it with 3/4 inch hardwood planks nailed to strips of 1z4 applied to our slab with tar. Hope this helps...
