    To not allow comments on new posts:

    Admin Dashboard>Settings>Discussion>"Default article settings">un-check "Allow people to post comments on new articles">(you may also wish to un-check the other two in this section)>save changes.

    To remove comments already made:

    Admin Dashboard>Comments>Check the box at any comment you wish to remove>Bulk Edit Drop Down Menu>Mark As Spam>Apply>>Then>Click on Spam folder link> select all (top check box)>Bulk Edit Drop Down Menu>Delete Permanently>Apply>Repeat if multiple pages of comments.

    I see, there are two ways to do so, one is using the built in page editor option to change comments allowed status:

    All Pages>Check top check box>Bulk Action>Edit>Change comment status.

    Or, if above does not work - make sure above is still done and then:

    Review the Page Template used, i.e. Page.php, Home.php, etc., for each page (this could vary) and comment out or remove the comments section. Without access to your theme, I cannot be more specific. Contact theme dev. for more specific instructions.
