Your first step is to check if the other sinks in your house are draining, otherwise drain your main canal is clogged and you need a plumber. Clogged kitchen piles usually occur because your garbage disposal is clogged or your drain pipe is clogged. The easiest and most expensive way to get it cleaned is to call a plumber. Most of the time it is an easy DIY job. First, you need to remove all food and food from your sink.
If you have a landfill, check if it works. If your exhaust does not spin, start by trying to free the propeller. To prevent serious injury, look under the sink and remove the disposal, if you can not remove it, you must turn off the breaker, switch on the switch and turn it off to make sure there is no power to throw away. Then you can release the boot rubber in the drain so you can look to the exhaust, use the flash if necessary. DO NOT Put your finger to the disposal, use a pin or needle nose pliers to grab it and pull the item out. After cleaning, try using a wooden spoon tip or a broom tip to rotate the blades, maybe you should work back and forth.
After you release the propeller, replace the rubber boot, turn it off and press the remaining button on the outside of the garbage dump under the sink. Turn on the water and start disposal, if water flushes your food to eat, otherwise your pipe is clogged. The next step, you have to remove all the water from your sink again. If you have a dishwasher, use a clamp or a handle to pinch the hose to be thrown away. Boil the pot with water and pour it down the drain, wait 10 minuets, if you have a duel sink, place the drain plug on the other side, add water to the clogged side and try dropping the plug to the drain. Boiling hot water will loosen up a lot of clogs. Next you can use a sewer cleaning chemicals to clean the clogs, but I will avoid using them because if it does not work you should separate them and risk throwing them into your skin or in your eyes.

You can mix the less toxic sucking solution versions with baking soda & vinegar. Remove the water, mix 1/3 cup baking soda and 1/3 cup of vinegar in large containers (will start to hiss and expand) and pour a little down each drain, wait 10 minuets while boiling other pots. water. Then pour boiling water down wait a few minuets and try plunging again. Hopefully this works or you need to separate the P trap (U-shaped pipe under the sink) and unclog your pipe. Unpacking the P trap, you guessed it, you have to drain all the water from your sink again.
Then I will clean everything from the cupboard under the sink, you need a place to work and water can water. Get a big tub, some towels. Put the tub under the P trap. If your P trap is plastic, you should not need a wrench to remove the plastic pea cap, it’s good if you use a towel over them, they can be hard to hold and feel sharp. If it’s a metal P trap you need a big wrench. Release the P-trap (water will flow) and clean it. If the blockage is not in the P trap and you have a metal drain snake, put it in the pipe as far as you can to clear the drain. Put the P trap back and try to drain the water. Check under sink as water flows for leakage. If all this work fails, your blockage goes further to the plumbing and you have to get the plumber out to find out exactly where the problem is.
