EI: How long before I see results?

I started EI dosing about a week ago to battle a little brush, lots of thread, a bit of hair, and a fair amount of green dust on the glass. I was wondering if anyone knows how soon I should be seeing results?

If you also have CO2 being injected, especially by the CO2 mist method (in my opinion) you should see changes pretty quickly. But, you still have to remove all of the thread, hair and BBA you see, plus clean out dead leaves, remove any dead fish, plus not overfeed. I found that tiny tufts of BBA go away on their own with enough CO2 in the tank, but not big clumps. And, the brown/green masses of hair algae have to be taken out with a toothbrush or by hand or by cutting leaves.
