H1 TAGS - Several of Mine don't refer to Titles...

Recently, as I have added several new plugins from the directory here I have noticed a lot of H1 language on my pages. I am not the greatest at H1 tags yet and actually am asking for some advice and ideas how to clean these h1 tags off of my pages. The first page example is http://www.integrity-pest.com. I have removed all h1s from the backend of the builder, but I changed several things to paragraph and then enlarged them to above 26px. Does that make it an h1?

The language you will see on my main page contains 10 h1s and only the 2 I have set are true H1s. I am afraid having all these H1s is causing my page to fall off the first page. Could that happen? I read the document about multiple H1's not being a big deal if they are accurate. But I feel like these are different and 10 of them is a tone! How do I go about cleaning all of these other h1s out of the source code and lastly.

A completely different question
When you see the source code, it appears there are several chunks of code that are new and very ugly...I don't see that type of jumbled code in my competitor's pages. For instance, line 52 and 817 are examples. What have I done wrong?

I am a new developer and want to learn from you guys and also be a big contributor as I improved.
Thank you

    hello ,

    I have removed all h1s from the backend of the builder, but I changed several things to paragraph and then enlarged them to above 26px. Does that make it an h1?

    No. H1 tag is h1 tag even its 12px big. P tag is always p tag even its 50px big. Size is only matter of looks.
    HTML markup does not change its meaning by changing its look.

    Right now you have one h1 with actual content inside and 8 empty h1. You have to remove those empty ones as they are doing nothing and they are not necessary.
    Here is on how to use multiple h1 https://www.greenlaneseo.com/blog/seo-101-seo-and-multiple-h1-tags/

    This is part of your theme, Divi. Those are JavaScript scripts. There is nothing wrong with it. Other sites are using different themes so code there will be different.

    Let me know if you have more questions.
