"schaden" can also be used for physical damages, even if "beschädigen" is the most usual verb for physical damages in things. There is an example in Duden that proves it: Das Lesen bei schlechtem Licht schadet deinen Augen (= reading in low light damages your eyes)

It should be included in that definition.
