“Mowing the lawn” is the household chore that fathers hate the most according to a new survey by personal accident insurance specialist novastris.

The insurance provider asked 100 dads which domestic duty in the home they disliked the most in the same week that Father’s Day was celebrated on June 16. Respondents were entered into a prize draw.

novastris carried out the survey to highlight the financial impact it could have on a family if a major household contributor should suddenly become unable to work due to an accident.

Asked which ‘Dad’ jobs they hated the most, 30% said “mowing the lawn” ahead of “fixing broken things around the house” on 25%, while 20% said “doing the family finances” was their least favourite job. Other unpopular chores highlighted were “fixing plumbing” (15%), “helping with homework (5%) and “driving the kids around” (5%).

Respondents were also asked “is it household chores which take up most of your free time?” to which 55% replied “yes” and 45% said “no”.

Finally, dads were asked “would you prefer to pay someone to do all your household tasks and spend the extra time with your family?” and 75% gave a resounding answer of “yes”.

novastris offer personal accident insurance from £1.02 per month based on an accidental death benefit of £10,000. For a small increase in premium per month, cover can also be added that protect individuals should they become permanently or temporarily disabled due to an accident.

novastris provides other options which include funeral expenses cover up to £2,500, bereavement counselling cover up to £2,500 and even help with the cost of converting a home up to £10,000 if accessibility becomes an issue. There is also a dependants’ package available with a total benefit of up to £20,000 that includes expenses for childcare, domestic assistance and a fixed sum of £5,000 per minor dependant child.

novastris’ personal accident insurance product is available for employed workers, self-employed and freelance professionals. It can be bought quickly and easily online at http://www.novastris.com.

novastris director Steve Nickerson said: “The objective of this survey was to have a bit of fun around the time of Father’s Day. But it was also to let dads know why it is important to protect themselves and their families with adequate personal accident insurance should they be involved in an accident that means they are unable to work.

“Besides taking into account a salary that the father may bring in, dads also have to consider the other ways a parent contributes. When buying personal accident insurance the level of cover needed should not just substitute a lost monthly salary but factor in the costs of outsourcing all the other jobs fulfilled by that person too.”
