for base boards just use a pry bar and gently work down the length of it prying it off, also if its painted run a knife down between the baseboard and wall to cut the paint. For the carpet if its glued cut in smaller strips so its easier to work with and just rip it up. If its not glued just rip it off the tack strips and roll up and throw away.

Yup. use a good knife to cut the paint and then just depending on how the carpet is attatched you should be able to just rip the bastard right out. Get ready for a disgusting surprise once you see the foam padding
The problem is not f*cking up the drywall. Even when you’re careful, using a pry bar can lead to problems. After cutting the caulk line with a utility knife, I stick in a 4" broadknife (similar in appearance to a drywall knife, but thicker). It offers a wider bearing point, and you can also pry against it with a wonder bar and not risk drywall damage.

you should also be able to use the braodknife and a hammer to "guillotine" the finish nails holding the baseboard on. Just find the spot where there’s a nail, place the broadknife behind the baseboard, against the nail, and whack it hard with the hammer. It should cut through the nail easily. You won’t ahve to do any prying then.
