Remove some layers - not all

I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way to remove all of the layers in my map except two (my base map and feature layer). 

User selects from the feature layer and the results are populated in a datagrid.  User can then use a checkbox to add multiple rasters and can turn them off.  However, if they don't turn them off and then clear the datagrid the rasters are still there. There might be one, there might be many.  What's the best way to query all layers, and then remove all the rasters?
