It's also important to note that one can store shemos in a special designated place where it won't get ruined besides for the ground. Take the Cairo Genizah as an example

comment Not approaching the Western Wall
This is from the end of the Igros Moshe OC 2:113 where he discusses where one can technically go , וכמדומני שבס' שאילת דוד להגאון ר"ד מקרלין מסתפק בהכותל איזה הוא. ואולי זהו טעם הגאון רי"ז מבריסק זצ"ל שאמרו עליו שלא הלך אל כותל המערבי מחשש טומאה. אבל אני תמה כי מקום שמתפללין שם הוא ודאי קבלה מדורות רבותינו הראשונים שמותר לילך לשם ואיך שייך לחלוק עליהם. ידידו מוקירו, משה פיינשטיין
