replae subfloor

I need to replace subfloor that has pet urine damage plus water damage from trying to shampoo the area after the dog damage. I probably got it to wet & now the particle board subfloor has swelled up. We want to install new carpet so I first must replace the subfloor. Is this a project for an average homeowner with some rough carpentry experience, and how do I attack it . All help will be greatky appreaciated.

Replacing the sub-floor is not that difficult. First determine the thickness of the floor, with a skill saw, set the blade to the thickness of the floor and cut & remove the damaged sections. Try and cut the floor so you land on the center of a floor joist so you will have a nailer for new floor. Make sure you ware safety glasses incase the saw meets any nails in the floor. Good luck with your project..
