How do I remove a baseboard and quarter round to do a repair without damaging them or the paint on the wall?

RE: Need to remove a quarter round and baseboard
first cut any caulking or paint where the molding meets the wall, cabinets, or other surfaces.  Then, using a putty knive between the wall and the baseboard to protect the wall, use a pry bar designed for removing moldings.  Pry at areas where the nails are.  You will slowly pry off the entire baseboard at the same time.
