Coolant Leak damage on Pulleys?

So I made the biggest mistake ever and didn't change my water pump on time. It caused a lot of damage in the cooling system. It leaked a lot of coolant. So now the issue I have is, can the coolant damage the pulleys and the alternator pulley? There is a squealing coming from the pulleys and it sounds like the alternator pulley. I had changed all the pulleys and the alternator about a month before this happened. Thanks for reading guys. Have a good day.

It soaked the belt. Change it and the squealing should go away. It doesn't hurt the pulleys to get coolant on them.
