Measure the plinth several times before cutting it off, because, by shaking it in pieces, you can spoil the design.
When choosing a place for fixing the plinth, pay attention to the unevenness of the floors and walls, which is very common. Mount the baseboard should be in those places where it can be pressed, that is, in the "grooves". To solve the irregularities of the floor and wall surfaces can be in different ways. For example, if a wooden plinth is attached, then its lower part can be slightly trimmed using a plane for this. In case installation of a plastic plinth is carried out, then it is possible to solve a problem of uneven walls by means of sealant. That is, the gap formed between the baseboard and the wall is filled with silicone sealant, level it, allow to dry, and later dyed in the same color as the baseboard.
